"It would be hard to find someone who would learn nothing from this book. ... I think that most physicists would both benefit from and enjoy working through the arguments ... presented here. ... I recommend it highly." (Phillip Helbig, The Observatory, Vol. 136 (1250), February, 2016)
"In Thanu Padmanabhan's new book, Sleeping Beauties in Theoretical Physics: 26 Surprising Insights, he aims to impart to aspiring theorists some of the important connections and techniques - spanning gravitation, classical mechanics, electromagnetism, and quantum mechanics - that he's learned over his career. ... All in all, Sleeping Beauties in Theoretical Physics is a potentially excellent resource for those looking to add to their mental tool kit and sharpen their theoretical skills." (Ethan Siegel, Physics Today, November, 2015)
"The collection is a highly suitable pedagogic material and should be a must read for anyone who is interested in Physics, either for a career or for pleasure. It should require no more expertise than is available to an advanced undergraduate student of Physics or allied disciplines. I recommend that this is definitely acquired by all college libraries." (R. Ramachandran, IAPT Physics Education, Vol. 31 (2), April-June, 2015)
