    What can I say – this is scientific outreach at its best, in the best arena of science – physics. Paul Halpern’s book not only explores beyond the horizon of observation, but takes the subject of cosmology to within everyone’s reach. He does this in a fun, non-condescending way, which unlike many science writers makes the reader feel included in the journey the book takes.




    On this Universal voyage, we encounter Dark matter and Dark energy; imagine what could be behind these significantly influential, yet largely unknown phenomena, before navigating our way through higher dimensions and across the Multiverse.




    In addition to all the accurately, concise information, we find ourselves learning about the cosmos in a fun way, with everyday references and analogies. The book oozes the author’s enthusiasm for the subject. I hope and expect this book will make a strong impact and whet the appetite for Cosmology to many more amateurs (like me) and pure novices alike, and judging from advance praise from the book’s previewers, Paul’s professional peers also think the book is wonderful.
