5.0 out of 5 stars Well written science book that starts to answer the future big questions, 17 July 2014
This review is from: A Universe From Nothing (Paperback)
This is a very well written science book that goes on to explain why there is something rather than nothing. Krauss goes into dark energy, dark matter, the Big Bang theory, inflation and other aspects of quantum theory in relatively laymen's terms that are easy to follow. He also lays out the evidence for each of these aspects and conveys them well enough that you could explain it to someone yourself.
But the major part of this book and a minor theme that runs throughout the book is, how did the universe come from nothing? Krauss' theory is very elegant and interesting, and with the new results that are being discovered at the moment that are to do with inflation, a big part of Krauss' theory, his answer as to how the universe came from nothing may be taken very seriously in years to come.
This book can somewhat fit into the series of books that follow an atheistic theme, along with Richard Dawkins The God Delusion, Daniel Dennett Breaking the Spell, Sam Harris A Letter to a Christian Nation and Christopher Hitchens God is not Great. This is the physics version of the atheist book, where the others focus on biology, philosophy, neuroscience and morality.
To conclude, this book is a short but good read into physics and questions that are being asked in the field at this present time, prior knowledge of physics isn't totally necessary to enjoy the book but is recommended if you want a complete understanding of what Krauss is saying.
