"Using a mixture of eye-catching graphics, humor, and good old science, Ben Gilliland, creator of the Metro's popular MetroCosm column, shows us how the cosmos came to be, unraveling the complex concepts surrounding the birth and development of the galaxies. Each chapter builds the universe piece by piece - from the making of matter, to the life and death of a star, to the creation of the solar system - while highlighting such discoveries as the cosmic microwave background, and a whole lot of other universe-building necessities. With out-of-this world images and fact boxes interspersed throughout, you'll be mastering the universe in no time at all."--Jacket.

Fun to read but not easy to follow when it comes to quantum theory. Maybe its just me, science has almost turned into religion and what I lack is faith. The best book about cosmology I have read so far and nice pictures too. Highly recommended.
