About this book
A thrilling journey back to the Big Bang, which shows the deep connections between the human body and the universe. 'Shubin is not only a distinguished scientist, but a wonderfully lucid and elegant writer; he is an irrepressibly enthusiastic teacher... a science writer of the first rank' Oliver Sacks
During the past 13.7 billion years (or so) since the Big Bang, our universe has evolved, stars have formed and died and our planet congealed from the matter in space. In this title, the author reveals to us the extraordinary cosmic and evolutionary adventure of our own bodies.
