From the reviews:
"This reviewer was surprised to find an entire book devoted to 'ultimate explanations,' but understood more after learning about the author's credentials. ... The modern physics contributions are appropriate and up-to-date, e.g., inflation and the big bang. ... A valuable book for all college libraries. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Academic, general, and professional audiences, all levels." (K. L. Schick, Choice, Vol. 47 (11), July, 2010)
