About the Author
Stephen Perrenod holds Ph.D. and Master’s degrees in Astronomy from Harvard University and a Bachelor’s in Physics from M.I.T. His primary research focus was on the cosmological evolution of X-ray emitting clusters of galaxies. After several years as a postdoctoral researcher in astrophysics he moved into the High Performance Computing field, where he has worked for over a quarter century. He has been a frequent public speaker on HPC, Grid and Cloud computing topics. When he was active in astrophysics in the 1970s, the cosmological constant – which now is of such great significance – was usually dismissed as unlikely to have a non-zero value.

Self Published Book with Internet Citations

Absolutely can NOT recommend this title. Quite obviously a self-published book with the vast majority of citations from the Internet. A RIP OFF from a scholarly point oif view. If this author is so learned why won't a reputable publisher publiush this book? Try the 4% Universe instead. Feel cheated at this ridiculous price. MAYBE worth $5 if you don't mind Internet citations. Made it unusable for me.
Rehash of Other Cosmologies

Not a very informative book if you're used to reading Lisa Randall and Brian Greene. The book did not supply any new information nor insights.
The title sums it up

The author pulls together the latest thoughts about Dark stuff and makes it all sound like there are some answers. Time and more experimental data will fill in a few blanks and expose many more. I only can hope that we don't destroy ourselves out of ignorance before we find the real Grand Unifying Theory.

I really enjoyed how each chapter built upon each concept. Basic quantum physics is still new to me and it is easy to get confused with new terms and equations. But, I would recommend this to those newly interested in the subject
Gold mining for suckers
20 June 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
This would be a fun book for a kid with all its hypotheses and history. As a retired educator, I appreciate the inspiration books like this give. I don't appreciate the distractions from reality, the lack of critical thinking, or the effects of hypothesis on the community at large. I've seen his other work, which is just as half baked and void of substance as this large print waste of paper. $30 for a vanity print with less than 150 pages and no color diagrams? This is a gold mining expedition. Go to a university and get a real book on physics instead.
