The comments about advanced formulas almost scared me away but it wasn't as bad as the reviews made it out to be. Most of the formulas are told so as to illustrate a relationship and are fully explained. Overall this is an excellent book for anyone with a basic physics background and a love for all things space!

I have read scores of books on the physics of the universe ranging from the very large to the minuscule and yet have found something new and enlightening in every chapter of this book. The educational quality of the book is exceptionally high on account of the limitation of prior knowledge on the part of the reader, the authors assume. The methodology of building up to the grand conclusions from simple prior knowledge through the use of analogy and thought experiments proves very effective in conceptualization and visualization of the ideas shared. There are still several places where the reader may feel a little list and wanting a second reading but in the whole, they are sure to walk away with an appreciation for the enormity of the universe and how much we humans have learnt about it in spite of our limited means, in the short time that we have been studying it.

Great audio book with a hidden secret - the graphics!
the accompanying PDF is 100 pages of graphics and photos that really enhance the text.
So open the PDF on your laptop start the audio and get the full picture of the cosmos.

The 1st half makes you think you're smarter than you are, the 2nd dismantles that idea. Later on in the book you do need the illustrations
