This fascinating book provides an accessible and up-to-date overview of modern cosmology. In particular, the evolution of large scale structures in the universe, the distribution of galaxies and clusters of galaxies. Following a brief introduction, the authors describe the scientific method of gaining knowledge, how observations are made and what is derived from those observations. They then discuss the constituents of the universe, including dark matter and dark energy, and provide an outline of the forces shaping the universe, mainly gravity. Following this, the reader is taken on a journey in time from the present, back to the very beginning of the universe, a period called inflation, which sets the initial conditions for the subsequent evolution of the universe. The book ends with a chapter on what might have been before the beginning. Written by two experts the book is aimed at the interested lay-person with little or no physics background, but an interest in modern cosmology.
