The End of the Beginning owes in its own origins to a question that "a girl in the third row" asked in a 2007 physics class taught by its author, astrophysicist Adam Frank. The question was simple: "But professor, what happened before the Big Bang." Dr. Frank's answer required the rest of class and then blossomed into this book with its twin, interlocking narratives, one looking forward, the other looking back. With a cogent narrative, he describes how we have experienced time in different ways over centuries, eventually bringing us forward to the most radical jump of all, the leap beyond the Bang of the Big Bang. Cutting-edge physics rendered in ways that we can understand.
