Very good but needs a new updated edition to be perfect,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cosmology: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)
I like this book, and several others in the series of "Very Short Introduction to...". I read some relevant chapters on the way to a talk on Highest Energy Physics at the Science Museum in London and found that my brief grounding from a chapter or two proved very useful.
These book are compact and therefore easy to carry, so there's no excuse for not taking one or two with you on the train or whatever.
My one criticism is that this particular volume on cosmology is a few years old (2001) and should be updated. Several important developments have taken place since its publication and these should be included in a new edition.
I own five of the books in this series and I like them all. This is a good one to accompany the one on Galaxies. The Astronomy one is only about the HISTORY of Astronomy, which is very interesting, but not about current developments.
