Editorial Reviews

Review

The beauty and uniqueness of the book is that is represents a perfect marriage of scientific thought and lyrical prose. It is a remarkable contribution to humanity, which is ready for a shift in scientific philosophy. --Catherine J. Rourke, Editor911

I found it to be the most entertaining and enjoyable physics book in sixty years... An entirely new picture emerges from [Tyson's] thoughtful reasoning and bold imagination.  Read it!
--Alan Chodorow, PhD

... Fascinating, thought-provoking, mind-blowing, andcontroversial, but it does offer a coherent explanation for observedphenomena and provides a path to the holy grail of physics, The Theoryof Everything...  --Jonathan DuHamel, tucsoncitizen.com

...Tyson has written a fascinating new cosmology book... Thisbook is more than just space science--it's a sweeping look at how wethink about ourselves and the cosmos. --Lou Varricchio, Managing Editor, New Market Press

From the Back Cover

Embark on an exciting journey to the frontiers of the universe!

Did the Big Bang really happen? What was the biggest blunder of Einstein's life? Is everything we've been taught about the universe wrong? In The Unobservable Universe, visionary scientist and engineer Scott M. Tyson successfully unravels cosmology and brings rocket science down to Earth, demystifying the universe in terms laymen can comprehend and enjoy, splitting atoms but not hairs on this magical mystery tour of time and space.

Dissecting nearly three millennia of scientific doctrine and drawing upon three decades as an accomplished physicist, prolific inventor and inspiring researcher, Tyson artfully deconstructs key misconceptions that modern science inadvertently continues to embrace − slaying the paradoxes and debunking long-held premises to expose vital new insights that will prompt scientists to fundamentally rethink skewed notions. His provocative theories translate quantum physics into an exciting master blueprint for all cosmology readers to explore and contemplate.

Tyson effectively propels readers toward a bold new paradigm, with a greater awareness of the mysteries of the universe that more accurately illuminates its truths and realities. Informative and entertaining, this groundbreaking book's lively style provides an enlightening page-turner, laced with solid research, simple analogy, contagious enthusiasm and brilliant humor to make even the most serious cosmologists smile.

As a benchmark for cosmology, The Unobservable Universe will forever change humanity's perceptions, with a compelling case sure to spark debate and controversy for decades to come.
