Editorial Reviews

Review

"Highly recommended for community library astrology collections and for anyone who wants a unbiased look at the universe itself."

(Midwest Book Review)

"The story is told in clear, straightforward terms, in the strict order in which the events happened, and uses no mathematics."

(Steve Goddard History Wire - Where the Past Comes Alive)

"There's at least one rock star who knows a thing or two about real stars."

(Jeff Foust Space Review)

"The scope of the book is ambitious; its hard to cram in antimatter and inflation in one chapter and then skip to planetary science and biology in the next. Still, the authors do a wonderful job tackling a broad array of cosmic subjects. This is just the kind of book that would have fired up my imagination as a kid!... In the end, Bang! is an excellent illustrated compendium for what are perhaps weightier and less accessible tomes."

(AstroGuyz.com)

"Stunningly illustrated... breathtaking views of galaxies."

(Journal for the History of Astronomy)

"It basically takes the reader on a tour of the entire universe, and tells you everything you wants to know... It's beautifully described, accurate and they feature fantastic photography. If you like astronomy and those Hubble pictures on the Internet, don't know much but would love to learn more, this would be a great book for you."

(Philip Plait FiveBooks) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
