Editorial Reviews

Review

`an engaging book ... practically a universal education in both the history of modern science and the history of the Universe ... will be much quoted, much debated and much praised'
Nature

`a feast: the kind of book which tells you everything you want to know about everything'
The Economist

`I was infuriated by it, disagreed with it and loved reading it.'
Timothy Ferris, New York Times Book Review

`in the speculative and intellectual richness of its pages, this book is probably unsurpassed'
Peter Atkins

`a masterly exposition of what seems bound to become one of the most important developments to have taken place in physical science'
TLS

`Intriguing analysis of new scientific thinking.'
Sydney Times

`unique and wide-ranging book ... The reader is taken on an eclectic study of many scientific disciplines and is presented with a revealing picture of the structure of the physical world solely in terms of its invariant constants. There are also fascinating chapters on the definition and
nature of life, the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence and the interpretation of quantum theory in relation to the existence of observers.'
Europe and Astronomy 1992

`If you get a kick out of cosmic coincidences The Anthropic Cosmological Principle ... is definitely for you. The "anthropic" idea, which is that our very existence may explain why the Universe is the way it is, is an extraordinary one. So too is Barrow and Tipler's account.'
New Scientist

From the Back Cover

In their classic work, John Barrow and Frank Tipler examine the question of mankind's place in the Universe, taking the reader on a tour of many scientific disciplines and offering fascinating insights into issues such as the nature of life, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, and the history and fate of our universe.
