Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Astrophysicists now believe that at least 90% of the universe is composed of material we cannot see--``dark matter.'' Trefil ``takes readers to the outermost frontiers of the new cosmology in this wonderfully readable tour of an Alice-in-Wonderland universe that is growing curiouser and curiouser,'' praised PW. (Sept.)
