The intent of this book is to give a simple and quick understanding of the universe. Maybe that in itself says why this didn’t quite meet expectations. The book is full of interesting information and is a good starting point for understanding our universe and its makeup. The problem is that science is not so simple to absorb.
But it’s a short book. The book felt a bit disjointed as well (because the book is just a collection of his essays rather than a book that addresses some topic from beginning to end).
