    I am still reading the book, but I find it fascinating so far. The subject isn't easy, but the author writes clearly, and you can understand him without first getting an A in calculus. I am amazed at how much we can deduce from the mere fact that nearly a century ago, we discovered that other galaxies are moving away from us at startling speeds.
