This is a refreshing contribution to the popular science genre, as it mixes physics and cosmology with some very personal aspects of Levin's life. The book touches on key areas such as general relativity, quantum physics and topology, and yet stays on track to tackle the question of the universe's 'spots'. The 225 pages are a very manageable, with clear diagrams and useful references within the text to a handful of other key popular science accounts. Recommended to anyone who is curious about the cosmos!
