Solid but disappointing,

I have read books by John Gribben before and generally liked them, but I found this one rather disappointing. It does cover the ground in a readable way, but I found some of the biographical information rather tedious. You want the characters to be brought to life, but giving so much informaton about parents and even grandparents failed to do that and felt like padding.
Equally the science was adequately but not well explained.
