About the Author:

Craig J. Hogan is Professor and Chair of the Astronomy Department at the University of Washington, Seattle. Author of more than 100 research articles in astrophysical cosmology, he has held postdoctoral prize fellowships at Caltech and the University of Chicago, and a faculty appointment at Steward Observatory of the University of Arizona. He lives in Seattle with his wife and three children.

Review:

From the reviews:

"The explosion of data and theory in cosmology has led to a profusion of books about modern cosmology written for non-experts. Craig Hogan's cosmic primer ranks among the best: it is a gem." NATURE

"... A book for those who already know something about the subject and want to be reminded of how all the jigsaw pieces fit together. And it is a priceless window into the mind of one of the major players in present-day cosmology." New Scientist
