About this book

&i;`An excellent bridge by which the lay-person can enter the domain of the Cosmos with understanding.'&o; Robert Williams, Director, Space Telescope Science Institute.

From the reviews: "The explosion of data and theory in cosmology has led to a profusion of books about modern cosmology written for non-experts. Craig Hogan's cosmic primer ranks among the best: it is a gem." NATURE "! A book for those who already know something about the subject and want to be reminded of how all the jigsaw pieces fit together. And it is a priceless window into the mind of one of the major players in present-day cosmology." New Scientist
