I haven't yet gotten round to raeding the whole book but so far it is very interesting and simple to make sense of. i would reccomend this book to anyone who is interested in this sort of thing, also good delivery and packaged nicely.

 Einstein would have loved this!

Cox has the most amazing ability to break down extremely complex ideas and make them not only understandable, but fun in a way I have not encountered before. Though you dont need to have any background knowlege of mathematics or physics, it does help :)
I would highly recomend this book if you are interested in physics, the universe or just want a fun challenging read.

 Great Read

This is a brilliant read for anyone interested in physics and mind boggling stuff! Cox and Forshaw strive to make the mathematics and physics which is normally conceived as boring, more entertaining and simpler, and also adding a little history in the twist. I would highly recommend this book to anyone pursuing anything to do with physics especially the nature of the cosmos, astrophysics and particle physics!

On a personal note I want to peruse further more in the field of physics, Cox and Forshaw have helped me to further understand some unanswered questions I once had.

Play showed also its highly professional manner of delivery on time and in pristine order. Keep it up!

 Wise Buy

Not really for simpletons, but then you do not have to be a physicist.
Anyone who has seen Brian Cox on his BBC program 'Wonders of the Solar System' will know who he puts facts forward elegantly and makes them very understandable.

Don't be put off by the topic if it seems daunting. This book is a fantastic read and I hope the pair produce more.
