Review:
I really enjoyed reading this book and found it to be incredibly interesting.

I feel like this book does exactly what it promises; it explains the basic science and theories of our universe and how everything works and it does so in an easy to digest and easily comprehensible way. The author also sprinkles in a fair bit of humour in this, which is quite delightful.

I was surprised at how much I already knew as I was reading this, and I actually think that was quite helpful; it happens quite a lot that the author refers to something but doesn't explain what it is, and I imagine that could be slightly confusing to some readers.

For me though, this was a marvelous read and it both taught me a lot and refreshed some things I already knew. There's a lot of information packed into the book, but what else can you expect; the universe is massive.
