Reviews

"A most remarkable achievement...presented with clarity...and great scientific accuracy."
--T.D. Lee, Nobel Laureate in Physics
"His book is science writing at its best."
--Martin Gardner, New York Review of Books
"The book is the first I have seen to put the details, both historical and conceptual, of the origin of the Universe within the grasp of the general reader... As such, it is a tremendous service to us all."
--Isaac Asimov
"Weinberg builds such a convincing case...that one comes away from his book feeling not only that the idea of an original cosmic explosion is not crazy but that any other theory appears scientifically irrational."
--Jeremy Bernstein, New Yorker
