In my continual bid to become more scientifically literate I picked up this book under the promise that it would be a readable introduction to the big bang. With delight in my heart and stardust in my eyes I can honestly report that it far exceeded my expectations.
Simon Singh has written a marvellous book that not only introduces the reader to the bones of the subject but also to the beautifully entangled history of characters and events behind our current understanding.
Expand your mind and read it. 🙂
