Review:

"Highly recommended."
Choice

"Experts will be able to go as deep as they like, but even those with only a 'popular science' interest in recent developments in particle physics, astrophysics, and cosmology will find much to interest them."
SIAM News

"As readable as a very hard book on theoretical physics would be."
New Scientist
