After the First Three Minutes by T. Padmanabhan
Book DescriptionHow does our Universe evolve? And how did structures like stars and galaxies form? In recent years, scientists' understanding of these profound questions has developed enormously. This book presents a clear and detailed picture of contemporary cosmology for the general reader. Unlike existing popular books on cosmology, After the First Three Minutes does not gloss over details, nor shy away from explaining the underlying concepts. Instead, with a lucid and informal style, the author introduces all the relevant background and then carefully pieces together an engaging story of the evolution of our Universe. We are left with a state-of-the-art picture of scientists' current understanding in cosmology, and a keen taste of the excitement of this fast-moving science. Throughout, no mathematics is used; and all technical jargon is clearly introduced and reinforced in a handy glossary at the end of the book. For general readers who want to get to grips with what we really do and don't know about our Universe, this book provides an exciting and uncompromising read.
