Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book I have watched many of Brian Cox's specials and this book went into a lot more detail about natural occurring events around us. He explains why snowflakes are always six-sided and symmetrical, how rainbows are made, and goes into detail on how gravity works. Loved it and couldn't put it down.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Professor Brian Cox:'Cox's romantic, lyrical approach to astrophysics all adds up to an experience that feels less like homework and more like having a story told to you. A really good story, too.' Guardian'He bridges the gap between our childish sense of wonder and a rather more professional grasp of the scale of things.' Independent'If you didn't utter a wow watching the TV, you will while reading the book.' The Times'Engaging, ambitious and creative.' Guardian'In this book of the acclaimed BBC2 TV series, Professor Cox shows us the cosmos as we have never seen it before - a place full of the most bizarre and powerful natural phenomena.' Sunday Express'Will entertain and delight . what a priceless gift that would be.' Independent on Sunday
