Most widely held works by Leonard Mlodinow
The grand design by Stephen Hawking( Book )

79 editions published between 1120 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 4,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Along with Caltech physicist Mlodinow (The Drunkard's Walk), University of Cambridge cosmologist Hawking (A Brief History of Time) deftly mixes cutting-edge physics to answer three key questions-- Why is there something rather than nothing? Why do we exist? Why this particular set of laws and not some other?-- and explains that scientists are approaching what is called "M-theory," a collection of overlapping theories (including string theory) that fill in many (but not all) the blank spots in quantum physics. This collection is known as the "Grand Unified Field Theories."

71 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 2,608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An irreverent look at how randomness influences our lives, and how our successes and failures are far more dependent on chance events than we recognize."--[Source inconnue]
Subliminal : how your unconscious mind rules your behavior by Leonard Mlodinow( Book )

35 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book the author of The Drunkard's Walk and coauthor of The Grand Design (with Stephen Hawking), gives us an examination of how the unconscious mind shapes our experience of the world and how, for instance, we often misperceive our relationships with family, friends, and business associates, misunderstand the reasons for our investment decisions, and misremember important events. Your preference in politicians, the amount you tip your waiter, all judgments and perceptions reflect the workings of our mind on two levels: the conscious, of which we are aware, and the unconscious, which is hidden from us. The latter has long been the subject of speculation, but over the past two decades researchers have developed remarkable new tools for probing the hidden, or subliminal, workings of the mind. The result of this explosion of research is a new science of the unconscious and a sea change in our understanding of how the subliminal mind affects the way we live. Employing accessible explanations of the most obscure scientific subjects, the author takes us on a tour of this research, unraveling the complexities of the subliminal self and increasing our understanding of how the human mind works and how we interact with friends, strangers, spouses, and coworkers. In the process he changes our view of ourselves and the world around us
Euclid's window : the story of geometry from parallel lines to hyperspace by Leonard Mlodinow( Book )

34 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physicist/writer Mlodinow leads us on a journey through five revolutions in geometry, from the Greek concept of parallel lines to the latest notions of hyperspace. Here is a new alternative history of math revealing how simple questions anyone might ask about space have been the hidden engine of the highest achievements in science and technology. The journey goes from Pythagoras through Gauss and Einstein and into the midst of a new revolution in which scientists are recognizing that all the varied and wondrous forces of nature can be understood through geometry--a weird new geometry of extra, twisted dimensions, in which space and time, matter and energy, are all intertwined and revealed as consequences of a deep, underlying structure of the universe. This book, a blend of rigorous, authoritative investigation and accessible, good-humored storytelling, makes an original argument asserting the primacy of geometry.--From publisher description

26 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,018 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The upright thinkers : the human journey from living in trees to understanding the cosmos by Leonard Mlodinow( Book )

16 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,010 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leonard Mlodinow takes us on a passionate and inspiring tour through the exciting history of human progress and the key events in the development of science. In the process, he presents a fascinating new look at the unique characteristics of our species and our society that helped propel us from stone tools to written language and through the birth of chemistry, biology, and modern physics to today's technological world. Along the way he explores the cultural conditions that influenced scientific thought through the ages and the colorful personalities of some of the great philosophers, scientists, and thinkers: Galileo, who preferred painting and poetry to medicine and dropped out of university; Isaac Newton, who stuck needlelike bodkins into his eyes to better understand changes in light and color; and Antoine Lavoisier, who drank nothing but milk for two weeks to examine its effects on his body. Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, Werner Heisenberg, and many lesser-known but equally brilliant minds also populate these pages, each of their stories showing how much of human achievement can be attributed to the stubborn pursuit of simple questions (Why? How?), bravely asked."--Publisher's Web site

Hace varios millones de años, nuestros antepasados descendieron de los árboles y se pusieron de pie, liberaron sus manos para crear herramientas y sus mentes para lidiar con el mundo que estaba a su alrededor. Leonard Mlodinow nos acompaña en un apasionante e inspirador viaje a través de la emocionante historia de la evolución humana y los eventos clave del desarrollo de la ciencia. Durante el proceso, presenta una nueva visión sobre la única característica de nuestras especies y nuestra sociedad que permitió la evolución de las herramientas de piedra al lenguaje escrito, pasando por el nacimiento de la química, la biología y la física moderna hasta el mundo tecnológico actual. Por el camino, explora las condiciones culturales que han influenciado el pensamiento científico durante años y las pintorescas personalidades de algunos de los grandes filósofos, científicos y pensadores: Galileo, Isaac Newton, Antoine Lavoisier, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, Werner Heisenberg, y otros menos conocidos, pero igualmente brillantes
