This is a sophisticated, nontechnical introduction to the main issues in the philosophy of physics. It is exceptionally well-written. The issues are well-chosen, the prose are clear and concise, the text is organized into manageable sections arranged in a logical manner, and the treatment of various positions on the main issues is evenhanded. Also, each of the three central chapters is supplemented by an annotated bibliography that will serve well as a selective guide for motivated readers.
