Recenzii

There is an embarrassment of books about the universe for the general reader, but few manage to pack so much, so elegantly, into such a compact space as this does. The book is generously illustrated.
Coles takes you gently through everything from Blue Shift to parallel Universe in a thoroughly entertaining read
a pleasure to read
