About the Book

“Wonders of the Universe” takes you on an amazing exploration throughout the universe from an angle that you’ve never seen before. Travelling throughout amazing locations around the world Brian Cox tells you how our understanding of the laws of physics on our planet leads us to the understanding of the universe. Poetic approach to the mysteries of physics by Brain Cox makes this great book a wonderful journey through the vast and mysterious universe.

The book has a usual easy-going style, which is typical for books of Bryan Cox. The book is very readable and perfect for any kind of reader. And, of course,the  amazing pictures make the reading experience even more “laid back”. I guess the only real disadvantage of the book is that at some parts of the book you really feel like you should rather be watching the TV series instead. So I think the best way to enjoy the book is together with the TV series.
