What the Critics Say

"If you've ever wondered why scientists believe such a far-fetched story as the big bang, this is the book for you. Karen Fox's easygoing account explains why big bang theory is more than mere mythologyand why the centuries-old struggles of astronomers and physicists have led to a compelling portrait of the universes fiery birth." (Charles Seife, author of Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea)

"A painless introduction for anyone interested in the mysteries surrounding the birth of the universe. It's a lively and gracefully written story, conveying the essence of modern cosmology, sprinkled with the human wrinkles that keep the enterprise intriguing." (Tom Siegfried, author of The Bit and the Pendulum: From Quantum Computing to M Theory - The New Physics of Information)

A funny, sobering history of the first lunatics who thought they understood the universe . . . and the most recent ones, who may actually have it right. (David Kestenbaum, NPR Science Correspondent)

    "out dated"

    the publication date for the book is 2002, despite Audible saying it's 2010, which appears to be the audio release date. a lot of the production refers to experiments planned for 2002-2007 as if they haven't yet happened.
