Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595387063, Paperback)

This book is intended as a highly readable introductory text on the concepts of astronomy, cosmology, relativity, quantum physics, particle physics, and string theory. From the smallest quantum scales, to the largest cosmic scales, the author uses a broad brush to fill in your understanding of the key ideas in these fields and theories.

It is hoped that The Humbled Blue Orb will wet the reader’s appetite with its clearly written text and illustrations; prompting them to explore more extensively into these interesting and mysterious areas of science.
