Reviews

`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.' The Guardian 09/02/02/ `Coles takes you gently through everything from Blue Shift to parallel Universe in a thoroughly entertaining read' TNT Magazine `a pleasure to read' New Scientist, 29/09/01
