The Goldilocks Enigma: Why Is the Universe Just Right for Life? based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Good review of the strange fact that life exists at all! the odds are greatly stretched that our universe exixts at all that has all the laws of physics just right for life.
Having written many Amazon reviews in the past, I was prepared to write a five star review for the Goldilocks Enigma. As a fan of Davies since the 80's I was really excited about this book when I spotted it in the bookstore. As with every Davies book it was easy to read and totally mesmerizing. However, before I wrote my review (opinion actually) I read some of the other reviews. I was disturbed to read the review by Randolph T. McCourt. I investigated his claim that the Cosmic Jackpot was the same book. Indeed it is! Word for word. I might be able to understand a author that has a poorly selling book repackaging it in a new cover with a jazzed up title but I can not see this being done with a book that is already selling very well. You can check out the sales rank yourself on both books. I would kill for scores such as these. Which brings me to the conclusion that this was published only for greed. I will not buy another Davies book. With 100 reviews written, this is my first one (1) star. As Randolph McCourt said, please be warned. Michael L. Gooch
