    1 thought on “Our Cosmic Origins”

    1. I only read chapters 1-5, which were the chapters recommended by the Teaching Company's Big History course. (Chapter 5 begins the discussion of the emergence of life.) It's an interesting book that isn't exactly too technical, but perhaps too filled with jargon for easy reading. If your last physics, chemistry and biology classes were many years ago, you might find your eyes glazing over at times.

    2. Armand H. Delsemme does a very clear description of the solar system creation starting from the big bang and provides comprehensive explanations about stars. He varies his book by providing background on early chemistry that could relation to the evolutionary origins of life on earth, plus information about earth's fossil and glacial history. Makes fascinating reading.

    3. Comprehensive yet succinct. Covered enormous swathes of time but didn't appear to miss any significant points in our current understanding of cosmology. Great book.
