It does exactly what is says on the tin!, 30 May 2002
I just read this book cover to cover about three times for my Physics course, and its a great little book.
Its one of the few text books i would recommend to a non Physicist (Though you do need a decent level of mathematical knowledge.)
It covers all of cosmology and the bigbang theory without resorting to Relativity and as such allows you to get to grasps with the concepts behind the universe with ease.
It allows the reader to understand the nature of the universe quite deeply for it size, and keeps you entertained throughout.
