Bringing the Universe Down to Earth!,
This review is from: Bang! The Complete History of the Universe (Hardcover)
The three great and well respected authors of this book have come together to write a most engaging and understandable book. The hardback version announces itself with a dramatic animated image on the front cover which, as you tilt the book, changes from the tiny beginning of the universe to the big ball of fire shown in the picture of the book here.
The book is large with quality colour printing throughout. The terminology used is clear and easy to understand which makes the subject accessible for the young (9-10 years) and older non-scientists alike. I have a degree in physics and I've always been dismayed when fascinating subjects have been unnecessarily complicated by a language and style only a very few can tolerate. This book breaks down these barriers and is an easy read for what is a galactic subject!
Apart from having lots of nice pictures to look at, it provides a wealth of information without being a heavy read. An inspirational, educational and enthralling read!
