4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books on cosmology in recent years., 14 Mar. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Inflationary Universe: Quest for a New Theory of Cosmic Origins (Hardcover)
This book is an excellent introduction to the theories behind modern cosmology. Although it professes to be accessible to the non-physicist, it must be said that one or two of the topics covered (especially the chapters on field theories) are quite advanced and possibly inaccessible to the lay reader. Indeed the author even advises nonexperienced readers to skip past these chapters. All in all though, the dearth of excellently rendered diagrams and well-thought out narration by the author make this possibly the most enlightening book on cosmic origins since "The First Three Minutes".

I know it's pedantry, but Guth is a bloody good historian of science as well as a physicist and to say 'lack' i.e dearth is unhelpful.
