I am only sorry that it took me so long to read this book. The book contains a wealth of basic information to help you understand science's view of just how our universe might have been put together. For a layman such as myself, it is a bit of a stretch to wrap your mind around the concept that that Hawkins presents here. However, the clarity of the presentation makes comprehension of the complex concepts presented much easier then it might have been. There are a number of more recent books by Hawkins and others on the subject. But I am glad that I read this book as a primer to reading those. If you have not read this book, I highly remirecommend that you do. There are many good reasons why this is one of the most popular books on science ever written.
