Publishers Description
In this strikingly original book, a world-renowned cosmologist and an innovative writer of the history and philosophy of science uncover an astonishing truth: Humans actually are central to the universe.

Keeping Up With the Universe  Sep 11, 2008
What an exciting read! Any intelligent layperson who wants to keep up with the latest science about the universe, including the Big Bang, Dark Matter and Dark Energy, will learn much. I have already bought 4 copies: 1 to underline (underline - haven't done that since college days!) and 3 to give as gifts. I've re-read this book 3 times. Kudos to the authors for helping me vision my place in the universe.
The View from the Center of the Universe  Aug 29, 2008
I have not finished reading this book but already find it VERY INTERESTING AND "FOOD FOR THOUGHT" ! I am enrolled in a Senior Adults class at the local University which is using this text for discussion and study. So far this is a very new ..for most of us..way of looking at the importance of the role we play in the universe. The authors challenge us with modern scientific facts that open up a whole new view of our potential in our wonderful Universe !
2/3 OK  Apr 21, 2008
The fist two parts of this book are excellent and show some good scientific research. The 3rd part, however, delves into conjecture and pure mysticisms and has llittle scietific relationship to the other two. I was surprised that the 3rd part was even inclkuded in this book and I'd recommend that readers just simply skip it.
God is Almost Still Here (Sort Of)  Mar 17, 2008
I can't make up my mind who this book is trying to reach; the fundamentalists or the godless scientists. The fundamentalists need the dose of wonder-through-cosmology to replace their biblical literacy and, I presume, the non-religious need an alternative to the horrors of existentialism. Falling in the latter camp (except for the existential bit) I find the voodoo-hoodoo dredged up from human pre-science a bit too much like speaking in tongues. The authors attempt to create a set of symbols to go with this new science/religion as a way to achieve some sort of primal archetype substitution. We have to wait until page 276 and 277 to find out about the new God where suddenly He is mentioned 22 times. The big news is that the authors believe "in God as nothing less than the process of opening our personal lines of contact with the unknown potential of the universe". O.K., at least there's nothing in there about rewarding jihadis with 72 virgins, but how much does science have to whittle down the God thing before we dispose of it once and for all?
Lest anyone should think my take-away from this book is all negative let me close on a positive note by recommending it as a good brush-up and review of current cosmology. Many of the concepts such as scale and time bias are worthy of serious thought. It is always a good thing to be reminded of the utter weirdness of the universe.

This is my second purchase of this book as I bought one to share. The video which comes with the book is also worthy to be shared.
