In "Universal," their third book together, professors Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw demonstrate how asking questions about the world around us teaches us wonderful things about the universe in which we live. The authors explain the basics of physics, from Kepler to the Large Hadron Collider, in a way that reaches an even broader audience than their previous books, "Why Does E=mc2?" and "The Quantum Universe."
