Self-described "renegade astronomer" Bob Berman likes to ask Big Questions in unexpected ways. For instance: "How do inert, random bits of carbon ever morph into that Japanese guy who always wins the hot dog contest?" In the aptly-named Zoom, he invites you to experience the constant movement that's going on inside and outside even as you sit quietly eating dinner or checking Facebook. Did you know, for instance, that while you're diving contentedly into dessert, you're sitting on a planet that is speeding through space at 35 times the speed of sound? An eye-opening, jaw-dropping look at everything from tiny atoms to an expanding universe.
