Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"John Gribbin's book is accessible, lucid and fun, while being no less brilliant than Hawking's book ... reading Gribbin on the subject [of astrophysics] makes this reviewer feel like a child allowed to stay up late."

John Wilkes,

Los Angeles Times

"Something else again ... Gribbin is having fun.... A book that rejoices in paradoxes and delights in reporting that nothing bizarre -- baby universes, bubble universes, universe-sized black holes, energy extraction and time travel through wormholes -- is denied by the laws of physics."

Publishers Weekly

"Gribbin writes entertainingly and makes difficult ideas sound simple."

Michael Rowan-Robinson,

Times Educational Supplement

"Fascinating ... Gribbin's thought-provoking book is written in the smooth, easy style of professional science journalism.... [It gives] the reader the secure feeling of being in the hands of a competent guide through perplexing territory."

H.C. von Baeyer,

New York Times Book Review
