Reviews

Fascinating information about astronomy and . . . cosmology. . . . An attractive and informative backdrop for stargazing.--The New York Times
Poised between poetry and physics, faith and reason, Raymo turns out beautifully written essays in a style somewhere between Loren Eiseley and Lewis Thomas. He ponders the science of the galaxies. He ties microcosm to macrocosm, moving from a red-winged blackbird to a quasar seen through a back yard telescope.--Publishers Weekly
Chet Raymo's book is for anyone who loves the music of words, the melodies of physics and the lyrics of a far-ranging and ingenious mind. Chet Raymo is one of my favorite writers for his wealth of imagery and the sheer pleasure of the writing--Ann Zwinger
