Reviews

"The End of Everything combines deep thinking about physics and big-picture awe in the style of Carl Sagan." --Randall Munroe, author of xkcd and What If?

"This book teaches you that the universe could end at any moment, but is so good that you will be rooting for it not to --at least, not until you finish the book. Katie Mack's witty, lucid prose is endlessly delightful." --Alexandra Petri, Washington Post columnist

"Everything dies, even the universe. But will it be a peaceful fading away, or a dramatic cataclysm? Scientists don't know for sure, but Katie Mack provides an expert and entertaining guide to the possibilities. Who knew a book about the end of the universe could communicate so much passion for science?" --Sean Carroll, author of Something Deeply Hidden: Quantum Worlds and the Emergence of Spacetime
"Thinking through the science of end times is actually a thrill....Mack's pleasing writing style makes speculating about the death of the universe unexpectedly entertaining." --Kirkus Reviews

"Mack's endlessly entertaining survey is infused with a palpable love of her subject, and will transmit to readers the same joy she finds in exploring the wide and fascinating universe." --Publishers Weekly, STARRED review
