Product description


Highly recommended for community library astrology collections and for anyone who wants a unbiased look at the universe itself.

(Midwest Book Review 1900-01-00)

The story is told in clear, straightforward terms, in the strict order in which the events happened, and uses no mathematics.

(Steve Goddard History Wire - Where the Past Comes Alive 1900-01-00)

There's at least one rock star who knows a thing ot two about real stars.

(Jeff Foust Space Review 1900-01-00)

The scope of the book is ambitious; its hard to cram in antimatter and inflation in one chapter and then skip to planetary science and biology in the next. Still, the authors do a wonderful job tackling a broad array of cosmic subjects. This is just the kind of book that would have fired up my imagination as a kid!... In the end, Bang! Is an excellent illustrated compendium for what are perhaps weightier and less accessible tomes.

(AstroGuyz.com 1900-01-00)

Stunningly illustrated... breathtaking views of galaxies

(Journal for the History of Astronomy 1900-01-00)
