Review:

'The real stuff of astronomy -- written by the best authority' --Stephen Hawking 'Mind-stretching... Equipped with little more than an inquiring mind, the reader can accompany this expert guide across the length and breadth of our universe, backwards and forwards in time, to find out just what cosmologists nowadays do and don't know' SUNDAY TIMES 'Masterly... I cannot think of a more civilised and stimulating way to escape from the mundane concerns of everyday life than to read BEFORE THE BEGINNING' FINANCIAL TIMES 'Fascinating... A highly accessible book... Sir Martin Rees does much to persuade us that the cosmos might well be even more spectacular than we could have imagined' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'If you haven't read a single cosmology book, this is a good place to start' NEW SCIENTIST 'This is the book for those who read A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME and were still left wondering whether they quite had the whole picture' GUARDIAN
