Publisher Comments:

Taking us on a thrilling, millennia-spanning journey through the life of a single oxygen atom, the author of the national bestseller The Physics of Star Trek now traces the history of the cosmos — from the Big Bang to the present...and beyond. Lawrence Krauss writes with grace and wit as he explicates cutting-edge science and reveals the surprising story of matter: what it is, where it came from, and where it's going.

Synopsis:

Now in paperback, the story of matter and the history of the cosmos--from the perspective of a single oxygen atom--is told with the insight and wit of one of the most dynamic physicists and writers working today.

An excellent tour de force of the life of an oxygen atom. A mind boggling book. Lawrence Krauss has a way with explaining things and does this in a creative way for the general public.
