"Ethan Siegel takes us on an engaging journey from the smallest to the largest scales of space and time. He illuminates the path with abundant useful figures, and clearly explains the varied topics he tackles. His descriptions for how the Universe expands, depending upon what it is made of, are particularly nice. His prose exudes enthusiasm and passion — not just for the things we have learned, but for the scientific process. A great read for the science enthusiast." -- Robert Garisto, Editor, Physical Review Letters
"Ethan Siegel has achieved the rare feat of writing a textbook that reads like an engrossing page-turner. This is a book that belongs on the reading list of every undergraduate introduction to astrophysics and cosmology." -- Dr Roberto Trotta, Senior Lecturer in Astrophysics at Imperial College, London, and author of 'The Edge of the Sky: All you need to know about the All-There-Is'
"With eloquence and clarity, Siegel tells us the story of the universe, from the (inferred) cosmic inflation and the Big Bang at the very beginning to the (predicted) Big Freeze at the very end. Beyond the Galaxy is one of those rare books that not only communicates scientific ideas, but communicates what science itself is all about." -- The Physics Mill
"Beyond the Galaxy is an excellent way for less cosmically minded physicists to fill in the gaps in their astronomy knowledge, and thereby transform 'things I've vaguely heard about' into 'things I actually know something about'." -- Physics World
