Praise for Professor Brian Cox:
Cox s romantic, lyrical approach to astrophysics all adds up to an experience that feels less like homework and more like having a story told to you. A really good story, too. Guardian
He bridges the gap between our childish sense of wonder and a rather more professional grasp of the scale of things. Independent
If you didn t utter a wow watching the TV, you will while reading the book. The Times
Engaging, ambitious and creative. Guardian
In this book of the acclaimed BBC2 TV series, Professor Cox shows us the cosmos as we have never seen it before a place full of the most bizarre and powerful natural phenomena. Sunday Express
Will entertain and delight what a priceless gift that would be. Independent on Sunday"
