I bought this book for someone else as an introduction
to modern cosmology. The book is intended for an non
expert audience and touches on all major issues in
scientific cosmology as in respect to observations and major
theories. The book presents the state of the art of the
current understanding. I found the book easy to read and
explaining in plain english (no formulas) the physical
concepts and open questions in this rapid evolving field.

For anyone interested to get a straight forward introduction
in this exiting field of research and absolutely worth the
money!

A good read, explains clearly what cosmology is without being overly complicated. Very good for anyone not familiar with the subject.

Fine summary of the state of knowledge, if slightly dated.
Excellent as quick refresher, well written, knowledgeable and witty style.

It is a book for those who enjoyed Science, especially Astrophysics and Universe.
For those, who do keen to know any of the dark sky, it is surely the one to get.

I found this book a good read: the book displays interesting and well known ideas and diagrams. Though I think you could get a better read: for example, I loved, Before the Beginning our universe and others, which doesn't make you fall to sleep every page.
But I must admit, I read it and I liked it. So I think you would too.
