What People are Saying About This

Arthur C. Clarke

"Is life a random accident, or is the universe in some way designed to produce it? Davies explores some of the mind-boggling consequences of an infinite universe, in which everything that can happen will happen an infinite number of times. . . .An excellent survey of the arguments that have raged around this subject for centuries."
