About this book

The author of the successful Pi in the Sky and The Anthropic Cosmological Principle describes how physical constants, for example units of measurement, have come to be established and why they are significant. The range of topics discussed is huge and the language somewhat technical. The anthropic principle, which the author helped to elucidate, is discussed with exemplary clarity.
