Cosmology: A Very Short Introduction

Peter Coles

Very Short Introductions

  • Written in simple language, without mathematics
  • Covers both the history of cosmology and the latest developments
  • Explains what is known, what is believed, and what is purely speculative
  • Peter Coles writes extremely well for a general readership: he is author of Einstein and the Total Eclipse and Hawking and the Mind of God, as well as textbooks on cosmology
