Inflationary Universe by Alan H. Guth
Book DescriptionThis classic Big Bang text neatly describes what happened after the bang. Yet, until recently, particle physicists and cosmologists were stuck on many questions that the Big Bang Theory still couldn't answer, primarily: If matter can neither be created nor destroyed, how could so much matter arise from nothing at all? Alan Guth's Inflationary Universe Theory answers these vexing questions. When NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer satellite measured the non-uniformities of the cosmic background radiation for the first time in 1992, the patterns agreed exquisitely with the theory's predictions.

Inflationary Universe, Paperback (February 1998)
This is a first-hand account of Alan Guth's theory of the origins of the universe. Regarded as one of the most important contributions to 20th-century science, it states that the big bang was set into motion by hyper-rapid inflation, lasting only a billion-trillion-billionth of a second.
