A wonderful book. The science throughout can be heavy and a little difficult to follow. Krauss pulls no punches. I'd definitely recommend it, with the caveat that being at least mildly scientifically literate is probably a prerequisite for taking anything important away from reading. I think it's one of those books worth having for its own sake, like Dawkins' "God Delusion."
Lawrence Krauss wrote an easily understood, yet profound work answering the deep philosophical/theological dilemma - how, without a Grand Designer, can a universe appear from nothing. His easy writing style, as well as his comfortable delivery makes this a must have for anyone interested in foundational questions, or science in general, irrespective of your educational level.
Will need to read this again to understand some of the concepts he was explaining and do some research outside of this book I think. The one thing I found about this book was that he always came to a conclusion that I could understand in all the chapters, even if I did not understand all the lead up. If you are interested in the origin of oir universe then this is a must read.
I struggled to follow because this was way above my intelligence. I'm a college student and maybe after a few years or after I get my PhD, I'll listen to it again and understand it better lol.
Book was dry. Author who read it was equally as dry. Even being a physics enthusiast who has read and listened to many similar books, I found myself zoning out due his inability to engage with the listener both audibly and contextually.
Two of the most fundamental questions in science are: (1) How did chemistry change into biology - the origin of life, and (2) What caused the Big Bang. This book answers thar latter question.
