"Distill[s] complex science in clear and lively prose". Scientific American Book Club..". The most informative, congenial and accessible general look at cosmology to come along since Carl Sagan's Cosmos 27 years ago", says Publishers Weekly. "The tone is informational, aimed at high clarity, and laced with giddy humor... general readers of every stripe will benefit from the authors' sophisticated, deeply knowledgeable presentation. If the casual book buyer purchases one science book this year, this should be the one".
