Doubtless, much will be made of his tortuous efforts to define "nothing", but for me, Krauss' definition is eminently more satisfying that the simple declaration that "nothing" is the absence of anything (or everything) and as science continues to mature, I sense that Krauss' view of the universe will prove more accurate than that of his critics. That Dawkins compares this book with On The Origin of Species says more than any drivel that I can cobble together: that alone makes this wonderful book worth reading.
I do recommend it even if its not such a simple read.
