About the Author

Steven Weinberg won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1979. He is the Josey Regental Professor of Science at the University of Texas in Austin and the author of many books, including Dreams of a Final Theory and To Explain the World.


"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
