I'm only 3/4 of the way through but this book is blowing my mind. I'm new to this subject and just starting to step back into the world of physics since my GCSE days (a long time ago). I tried some of the other 'introductory' books but I think they still assume a certain level of understanding. This really is a step by step guide, taking you on a journey through one of the most exciting subjects there is. I'm so glad I found this book because it's opened up a whole new interest for me. This being said, I think somebody with a more extensive knowledge would also enjoy it - my father in law has read Hawkings etc but has his own copy of this and has found it 'a joy' (his words), I think Galfard's writing style is so enjoyable and accessible that anyone would find this captivating.
I would highly, highly recommend. Especially if you are just taking your first tentative steps into these ideas and concepts.

By far the best popular-science book I’ve ever read.
Even though I was familiar with the content, his skill as a writer breathed new life into it all.
It was very clever of him to take the reader on a journey like no other where you get up close and personal with the wonders of reality as it is currently understood by science.
His ability to present mind numbing distances and scales both big and small in an entertaining way is remarkable.
His use of excellent English really lets the narrative flow and you the reader get to feel some of the passion and love this man has for his subject matter.
I don’t begrudge a single penny of the price of admission for this amazing journey.
Christophe, you have my respect and gratitude for a job superbly done
Finally I’d just say that it’s awe inspiring to realise that by the end of the book you will have gained knowledge that was available to
only a handful of people in the entire world just a few decades ago. Wow.
Impressive.

The writer begins in the right way by conjuring grand images for the reader to visualise and interact with. Unfortunately, it gradually loses its tone throughout and this results in overwhelmingly complex mathematics being rendered and transformed into useless imaginings that are beyond the comprehension of the imagination. I can travel through space in my mind, in fact, I do it all the time, but is it necessary to attempt to explain such mindbending ideas with what eventually becomes day to day banality.

This book is amazing, both because he only mensiin ONE equation, and describes very detailed and imagery explanation of the universe.

This makes the book easy to understand and it is very well written too - both to those who understand nothing of physics, and those who are nerds (no offence, I am a bit too!) He writes with humour and addresses the reader as though telling a story from old days. Genius man, and highly recommendable!

Absolutly amazing book. I'd recommend this to anyone, regardless of their interests and if they have no interest in the universe.

Galfard sends you through space as if you were viewing it in the first person and keeps the subject chapters alive in your mind for the whole duration.

Well worth the read, highly recommended!

Except in more detail and at a faster pace. Great for those who want the latest knowledge but aren't ready for the full degree level maths and background science. The understanding needed is not technical but it does help to have a reasonable knowledge of the subject. Still, very well written, informative and makes you want to go out and learn more.

This is the first time in my long life that I have enjoyed being patronised by a very clever person. A wonderfully accessible book. I am grateful to the author for helping me to understand some of this magical subject matter.

This book really opens you up to the magnificence and magnitude of our universe to the point it blows your mind. It does it in a very accessible way. Absolutely recommend.

I would rate this book as one of the best popular science books I have read. It has reenforced my understanding of the parts of physics I knew and completely opened up many things I didn't know. I would recommend this book to anyone.

For anyone with an interest in astronomy who may struggle with the big words of other books. Really simple to follow and paints a great picture in the imagination
