Part of the 'Complete Idiot's Guide' series.
This book is the most comprehensive introduction to the origin and nature of the universe - covering everything from early religious and philosophical creationism views to the most mind-blowing theories of cutting-edge astrophysics. The book offers an overview of the Cosmos, including how it all began, how it may all end, and where we are in putting it all together today. But the book doesn't stop at that. It also discusses the fascinating and even sometimes bizarre implications of these theories.
