Reviews

'This is a book that is rich in the poetry of scientific language . . . [N]ot only does [Scharf] know more about the universe than you or I do, he knows how to transmit his knowledge by deft use of analogy' * Guardian on Gravity's Engines * Miller's stunning illustrations pair perfectly with Scharf's compelling writing, which introduces complex ideas using everyday language and lucid metaphors. Complementary infographics are fun to read and help put massive numbers in perspective. * Kirkus * A fantastic journey from the fringes of the visible universe to the heart of the atom in this mesmerizing look at cosmology, astrophysics, quantum physics, and more... This book of wonders is perfect for casual readers, especially young students seeking a broad view of many subjects and how they all fit together. * Publisher's Weekly *
