The subject matter is pretty heavy and I have to read this book slow - very slow. It was well written and brings you up-to-date knowledge on how science views the universe. Many subtopics are covered and if you have any desire to know more about the origin of the universe, its past and the future it is heading, this book provides a lot of food for thought. I like this book enough to plan on purchasing my own copy. Highly recommended for the right audience.

This is the first science book I've read that looks ahead to the distant future of our planet, galaxy and universe. Very good for the history of science as well. I plan to read it again.
