5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 20 Aug 2011
This review is from: The Origins of the Universe for Dummies« (Paperback)
5 stars. The 'For Dummies' books should be on every student's reading list. A comprehensible run down on the main topic on the origins of the universe without dumming it down too much. A must read for students or people with a general interest in the topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book but for selected readers, 10 Jun 2014

This review is from: The Origins of the Universe for Dummies« (Paperback)
If you like physics and you have already a good insight into cosmology this is definitely a great book. It is a comprehensible recap of the basic topics (dark matter, dark energy, inflation, big bang..). Every thing is explained clearly without maths. Each part is not strictly linked to the others, so you can start reading the topic you are interested the most.
But please be aware that if you are not initiated to cosmology, do not even know general relative theory this book will be of low interest. On the either side if you are a theoretical physicist this book is probably like a children's storybook.
For me it was worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars For dummies - no, but for the uninitiated in the mysteries of modern physics, yes!, 21 Jun 2013

This review is from: The Origins of the Universe for Dummies« (Paperback)
A clear, straightforward guide to modern theories, together with some useful probing of the many questions
that remain. Recommended to us by a university physicist who thought it the best basic book on the subject.

This review is from: The Origins of the Universe for Dummies« (Paperback)
This book is great. It brings the study of the universe right up to date and looks at in some detail the ideas of cosmology: the study of the universe itself. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t an undergraduate text book, but nor is it a coffee table astronomy book or a popular science boo. It is right in the middle: perfect for folks who wish to gain insight into ideas such as the creation of the heavy elements, dark matter, dark energy and inflation. It does this without the need for higher mathematics (hence it isn’t an undergraduate text) yet it still gives the reader a useful board understanding of the topics covered.

If you want a simple, non mathematical account, of our origins and current existence including the potential future for us. This is well worth considering.
