The Universe In Your Hand: A Journey Through Space, Time and Beyond - Christophe Galfard

A good read for those who want an easy introduction to cosmology and theoretical physics. The first few chapters cover phenomenea which I have already some general idea of (in fact, I find that some details are glossed over) but the way they are written can be quite evocative; there are certain parts which fill me with both wonder and awe at how huge the universe is and how insignificant we are in comparison. However, I find my interest slipping in the last few chapters, maybe because they were dealing with more complex concepts than what I am used to or perhaps that they are so complicated reducing them to simplified form doesn't do them justice. Still, it's a good introduction to the universe if you need one.
