... is today (in the US, at least) a Kindle deal. I've been wanting to read it for a while, since I'm a fan of her blog, but I was balking at the list price of $16.99 (!) for the Kindle book. It's a critique of the current state of research in particle physics and cosmology, picking up on such earlier critiques as Lee Smolin's The Trouble with Physics and Peter Woit's Not Even Wrong (both 2006, so in need of the updating Hossenfelder provides). From what I've read of it so far, and from her other writings, I highly recommend it. I'll come back with a fuller account once I finish it. Anyone else read it?

As far as I can tell, the book isn't available at all for the Kindle in the UK, just in hardcover (£21.03), as an audiobook ("free with your Audible trial") and on an Audi CD (£11.25).

And now I've discovered it. Thanks for the link! Some of this is stuff I've been thinking for a while and some of it is stuff I hadn't considered. What I've read so far, however, is grounded in a much better knowledge of physics than I've got.
