    In this deeply original book, science writer Anil Ananthaswamy sets out in search of the telescopes and detectors that promise to answer the biggest questions in modern cosmology. Why is the universe expanding at an ever faster rate? What is the nature of the "dark matter" that makes up almost a quarter of the universe? Why does the universe appear fine-tuned for life? Are there others besides our own?

    "Surprised by the personal, earthiness of Anil"
    Overall

    Anil excels in letting you feel the lives of the people and places of discovery.

    The ending was disappointing. It's style and emphasis were obviously not Anil's. The editor's heavy handedness glared over Anil's in an attempt to interject the manipulated contrivance and preachiness of the 'Global Warming' cult.

    Luckily, Anil's own unique, warm personal wonder and respect for the honest sweat and sacrifice of true discovery touches a reader's heart and mind.

    Enjoy this book. =)

    Here's a creative way to make the best use of your morning commute: listen to The Wall Street Journal. Each morning, you'll get the must-hear stories from the Journal's front page, as well as the most popular columns and briefings from Marketplace, Money & Investing, and more. And, every Friday, you'll get a bonus delivery: features, columns, and reviews from the Weekend Journal.

    Worth listing to. Watch out Audible.com?! Audible listeners may take up with this e-reading boon. My family still benefits as we listen at the breakfast table.

    Overall

    INSTRUCTIVE:
    If this is representative to our legislator’s main line culture and if you are already are aware of this shameless peacock dance . . . don't bother. The useful details are obscured by this banal dance.

    If you are not aware of this capitol culture . . . listen . . . as this is the real story here. I gave 4 stars for this kind of listener.

    Here is my analysis to the content:

    -25% shameless peacock dancing
    -25% pecking-order-reinforcement activity
    -40% Indiscriminate character abasement
    -5% Partisan recommendation of action to take based on detailed events and analysis
    -5%. Non-partisan recommendation of action to take based on detailed events and analysis

    I wish this could have been about , , ,
    The vision for America's UN participation detailed and how Bolton would or would not be able lead that vision forward.

    My ideal:
    A debate of the interviews and subsequent evaluation(s) by 2 or 3 HR professionals of Bolton's qualifications would have been much more enlightening.
