Publisher's Summary

Free yourself from cosmological tyranny! 

Everything started in a big bang? Invisible dark matter? Black holes? Why accept such a weird cosmos? For all those who wonder about this bizarre universe and those who want to overthrow the big bang, this handbook gives you "just the facts": the observations that have shaped these ideas and theories. 

While the big bang holds the attention of scientists, it isn't perfect. The authors pull back the curtains and show how cosmology really works. With this, you will know your enemy, cosmic revolutionary - arm yourself for the scientific arena where ideas must fight for survival! 

This uniquely framed tour of modern cosmology gives a deeper understanding of the inner workings of this fascinating field. The portrait painted is realistic and raw, not idealized and airbrushed - it is science in all its messy detail, which doesn't pretend to have all the answers.

Good book, just read too fast.

Loved this book and how it framed modern cosmology as our best idea of how the universe works and not the capital "t" Truth.

Only problem I had was the narrator, who was reading through the material at a break neck speed and with no emotion. Almost missed a few jokes because of it.
