A really good story, too.' Guardian`He bridges the gap between our childish sense of wonder and a rather more professional grasp of the scale of things.' Independent`If you didn't utter a wow watching the TV, you will while reading the book.' The Times`In this book of the acclaimed BBC2 TV series, Professor Cox shows us the cosmos as we have never seen it before - a place full of the most bizarre and powerful natural phenomena.' Sunday Express`Will entertain and delight ... what a priceless gift that would be.' Independent on Sundayshow more
