Human universe is an exciting and fast-paced read. Have you have ever wondered about some of the most fundamental questions in life, such as: Why we are here? Are we alone? What is our future? If so, this book will help to answer those and leave you wondering about many more.

Brian Cox and Andrew Cohen guide you through our current understanding of the science behind these fundamental questions in Human universe. They show just how extraordinarily detailed our understanding of the universe in which we live is, and do so by covering the work of the many talented scientists who have contributed to what we know today. From physics to chemistry to biology, Cox and Cohen manage to communicate a vast array of complex ideas in a truly engaging manner, making this book a brilliant read. The book touches on concepts taught at university level but presents it within a fascinating context that makes it accessible to a wide audience. 

Their passion for future discoveries is also apparent. The authors talk with boundless enthusiasm about the vast number of unknowns that still remain in our understanding of the world in which we live. It will leave you feeling quite excited about what remains to be discovered and is likely to instil a desire to hear about future discoveries, as well as learn more about the work of great scientists from the past. 

There are parts of this book that you might read twice, three times or even dwell on for a while as they sink in, and others that you might want to refer back to later. You’ll no doubt be regaling tales from Human universe to friends and family long after finishing it. A fantastic read that I would recommend to anyone who is willing to learn about our great universe and let themselves be amazed.
