The subject matter is very informative and written in a way to help a person understand the exploration of the early Universe. The cosmic journey of Chemistry and Physics will guide you though from very little understanding to Collage level. About the time you are drowning in one subject area Dr. Frebel gives insight to earning her PhD which is a welcome relief. Then it’s back to the subject matter, so that by the end of the chapter you’ve learned something.

For students of the Natural Sciences this book should be on your bookshelf. It explains the nuclear reaction of chemistry, and should be studied again and again. I’ve never seen this materials presented in this way before.

For the student of Astronomy it explains the history of star formation and astrophysics that make up stars. It also makes the paths in the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram (H-R diagram) and the spectrum of stars understandable.

And for the person with Binoculars in the backyard it informs the how of the early universe, but not the why. This is the way it should be you don’t want to lose wonder of the night sky.
