"-- Independent""A genuinely new idea about the origins of the universe." "--"Doug Johnstone", Scotsman""Cycles of Time can be highly recommended as an example of how cosmologists are now thinking the unthinkable by trying to look back beyond the Big Bang and forward beyond the death of our universe."
