This book lays out a scientist's view of the world, ranging from the history of important scientific findings to research papers from just a few years ago.
Brian Cox (professor, educator, enthusiast) writes beautifully and tells compelling stories about the wonders of science. As I've learned in this book, he actually spent the years of his PhD in Hamburg, being no stranger to the Reeperbahn and other attractions. High five, Mr. Cox. ✋
This is neither a text book, nor one cohesive story, which is maybe something to criticise. However, I didn't mind at all and liked the book a lot.
As a reader, I felt encouraged to ask questions with the curiosity of a child's mind and to look for the answers through the eyes of science.
As a bonus, the text was set with pretty typography.
