Product description

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." The authors' episodic approach--brilliantly illustrated with color photos throughout--makes the "lessons" approachable and digestible, requiring neither a large investment of time nor a science degree. Readers of "Universal" will come away with a much greater understanding of the universe and all it contains, making the mysterious somewhat less so.
