Bob Berman's Strange Universe is a unique guidebook to some of the more bizarre moments in astronomy and astonishingly true facts about the world around us. Berman is motivated by a straightforward philosophy: everyone can understand science. He feels passionately that basic realities of our existence are truly marvelous, and it only takes a little bit of science to appreciate them.
Geared to the nonscientist, Berman's original essays are filled with the trademark wit and cleverness that has earned him acclaim over many years in his columns for Astronomy and Discover magazines. He emphasizes curiosities of the natural world to which everyone can relate, and dishes on the little-known secrets about space and some of science's biggest blunders (including a very embarrassing moment from Buzz Aldrin's trip to the moon).
Fascinating to anyone interested in the wonders of our world and the cosmos beyond, Strange Universe will make you smile and think.
