The Magick of Matter: crystals, chaos and the wizardry of physics

Waterstones Bookshop, Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3AF

This is the one-stop guide on how to harness the enigmatic workings of the natural world to become a thoroughly modern wizard. Join Felix Flicker on an empirical adventure in condensed matter physics; the scientific mechanism behind the mysteries of alchemy, transmogrification, and much more.

Felix Flicker lectures at the School of Physics and Astronomy at Cardiff University. Formerly the Astor Junior Research Fellow of Physics at New College Oxford and a Lindemann Trust Fellow at U.C. Berkeley, he holds a masters in Theoretical Physics from the Perimeter Institute and a PhD in theoretical condensed matter physics from the University of Bristol. He is also the former British Champion of Shuai Jiao (Chinese wrestling).
