A dense book on modern cosmology. A passionate defense of science against the simplistic ideas of theology/religion. A short summary of some of the most important things we've learnt about the universe in the last century. A Universe from Nothing is all that and more. I read a review somewhere (on Amazon?) that basically said the afterword by Richard Dawkins was pointless, but I actually liked it. It was a welcome summary, as this book tackles a lot of difficult concepts. Recommended.
