Product Description:
Professor Brian Cox is back with another insightful and mind-blowing exploration of space.

This time he shows us our universe as we've never seen it before.13.7 billion years old. 93 billion light years wide. It contains over 100 billion galaxies, each containing hundreds of billions of stars. This infinite, vast and complex Universe has been the subject of human fascination and scientific exploration for thousands of years.

The wonders of the Universe might seem alien to us and impossible to understand, but away from the telescopes, the labs and the white coats, Professor Brian Cox uses the evidence found in the natural world around us to explain its simple truths. The same laws of light, gravity, time, matter and energy that govern us here on Earth are the same as those applied in the Universe.

Using 3D CGI imagery, his expert knowledge and his infectious enthusiasm, Professor Cox shows us that if we can understand the impact of these governing laws on Earth it will bring us a step closer to an understanding of our Universe.

I love books, but sometimes you can get bogged down with all the wording and you just want a diagram to show you. This book is well illustrated. It is easy to read without being patronising, but also for the academics out there it covers some more in depth themes.

My friend loves all this stuff so I have bought it for a present - but I keep reading it! Good value too, cheapest I've seen it was £10 at a half price book event in my supermarket. I would recommend this to anyone aged 13 - 103. Well written.
