Description

Internationally renowned theoretical physicist and bestselling author Lawrence Krauss offers provocative, revelatory answers to the biggest philosophical questions: Where did our universe come from? Why does anything exist? And how is it all going to end?
  'Why is there something rather than nothing?' is the question atheists and scientists are always asked, and until now there has not been a satisfying scientific answer. Today, exciting scientific advances provide new insight into this cosmological mystery: not only can something arise from nothing, but something will always arise from nothing. A mind-bending trip back to the beginning of the beginning, A Universe from Nothing authoritatively presents the most recent evidence that explains how our universe evolved - and the implications for how it's going to end.
  It will provoke, challenge, and delight readers to look at the most basic underpinnings of existence in a whole new way. In the words of Richard Dawkins: this could potentially be the most important scientific book since Darwin's On the Origin of Species.

    The writing style is easy to read using as simple English as I've seen in a book about the universe. Ultimately as of today we still don't know what happened before 10x -35 seconds but after that? We know so much, and and Krauss builds on the shoulders of giants before him. Words fail me but if you really digest each chapter you will reach a superb understanding of how the universe came to be, from nothing. Remember a 100 years ago we thought all that existed was the milky way in a static universe. My goodness how stunted we were! But thanks to patient work based on science - the experimental testing of theories, we now know we are a minuscule tiny less than a dot in an universe that is over 42 billion light years in diameter, and its expansion is accelerating, for ever. Awed.

    Do people really go through their lives not thinking about such things? If you're fascinated by the nature of this universe and how it came about, and you want an attempt at answers to your questions that comes from reason rather human desire, then this is the book for you. Krauss describes the complex path to our current understanding of the universe in illuminating and exhilarating terms for the layman. This book shows you how far we've come towards real answers to some of the mysteries of life. Will we ever get to the end of the road? Maybe not but this book shows were not going to stop trying anytime soon. Not even in the year two trillion? Enjoy...
