The wonders of the Universe might seem alien to us and impossible to understand, but away from the telescopes, the labs and the white coats, Professor Brian Cox uses the evidence found in the natural world on Earth to brilliantly explain the truth of the cosmos.

The wonders of the Universe might seem alien to us and impossible to understand, but away from the telescopes, the labs and the white coats, Professor Brian Cox uses the evidence found in the natural world on Earth to brilliantly explain the truth of the cosmos. Professor Cox will show how the vast and unfathomable phenomena of deep space can be explained, and even experienced, by re-examining the familiar here on Earth. He is determined to answer the most profound questions we can ask about ourselves and the world in which we live, but in a uniquely understandable way.

Wonders of the Universe is a 2011 television series produced by the BBC, Discovery Channel, and Science Channel, hosted by physicist Professor Brian Cox. Wonders of the Universe was first broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC Two from 6 March 2011. The series comprises four episodes, each of which focuses on an aspect of the universe and features a 'wonder' relevant to the theme. It follows on from Cox's 2010 series for the BBC, Wonders of the Solar System.

Professor Brian Cox & Andrew Cohen

Professor Brian Cox & Andrew Cohen. But, paradoxically, as our knowledge of the Universe has expanded, so the division between us and the cosmos has melted away. We must be careful with our choice of words here, because this is a book about science, and the key to good science is the separation of the known from the unknown. This interesting thing that happened corresponds to the origin of everything we can now see in the skies.

Cox brings a magical enchantment to this life-changing book. Breathtaking images brighten Cox’s enthralling exploration of the fascinating science and overwhelming majesty of natural phenomena from ocean currents to black holes. Cox, called Carl Sagan with a Britpop haircut by the Los Angeles Times, follows in the footsteps of Stephen Hawking and Brian Greene in this riveting and dynamic tour through the Wonders of the Universe.

Professor Brian Cox is back with another insightful and mind-blowing exploration of space. This time he shows us our universe as we've never seen it before. 13.7 billion years old. 93 billion light years wide. It contains over 100 billion galaxies, each containing hundreds of billions of stars. This infinite, vast and complex Universe has been the subject of human fascination and scientific exploration for thousands of years. The wonders of the Universe might seem alien to us and impossible to understand, but away from the telescopes, the labs and the white coats, Professor Brian Cox uses the evidence found in the natural world around us to explain its simple truths. Travelling to the North Pole, Professor Cox demonstrates how spinning worlds create electrical currents and magnetism; he looks at the South Pacific Ocean to explain how the Universe communicates and moves in waves; he shows us how the water of the Angel Falls waterfall in Venezuela behaves exactly like the light does around a black hole. The same laws of light, gravity, time, matter and energy that govern us here on Earth are the same as those applied in the Universe. Using 3D CGI imagery, his expert knowledge and his infectious enthusiasm, Professor Cox shows us that if we can understand the impact of these governing laws on Earth it will bring us a step closer to an understanding of our Universe.

This book does a really great job of putting into perspective the immense aspects of the universe, whether it be the sheer size or age of it, or even the age it will be when it dies!

However, I do wish it went a little deeper into the underlying physics of things. Professor Cox has wonderful and poetic analogies, but they can remain a little superficial, I was left thirsting for more gory details on why things are the way they are! Yet, it leaves you thirsting to know more about the astonishing nature of the cosmos. I never wanted to stop reading.

As for the Kindle version, the book is readable, but disjointed as what must be magazine-style layout in a book does not present very well on the Kindle. Many of the images are very detailed, vibrantly colored, and hence not really viewable on the Kindle. Future large-format, color readers should be great. (Check out the images on your PC)

Every human who lives in our solar system should read Brian's book. I routinely amaze people with facts I learned in Brian's book. I've had a keen interest in an astronomy since I was a child (I'm now 54) and considered myself reasonably acquainted with things like star death, distances, our solar system, etc. When I read Brian's book, however, it not only cast a new perspective for me on things, I also learned a great deal about how we determine the composition of distant bodies using only light.

It's a wonderful reference book and a great tool to swiftly take people from the mundane to the extraordinary (and back again after you realize that every piece of matter in the universe originated from the same place).

Basic and not quite up to speed in some areas. Poor gravity coverage, but then cosmology is changing or at least questioning at breakneck speed. Overall this would be appropriate for a high school level text if the teacher knew enough to point out the weak areas. I do think Cox could have introduced a few more fundamental mathematical relationships for good measure.

Well written book. It would provide a good beginning book on the broad topics of the Universe. It should help the beginning student, or casual reader, to get the basics about how the Universe came to be, how it expanded, stars formed, etc. It covers a broad topic at a shallow depth.

When I first saw this series on BBC I decided to purchase the dvd collection. Then I viewed The Wonders of the Universe and purchased that dvd collection. I missed his series on The Wonders of Life since it hasn't been shown in the U.S. to my knowledge as of yet. So I then decided to purchase all of his books to accompany the dvds. It definitely was not a mistake. Brian has a way of describing each of these subjects in his own easygoing style which is refreshing since he is an astrophysicist. But he cuts through all of the formality so that each subject can be read and understanded by any reader. I can't recommend these books any higher. They are just marvelous.

i am ro from the australian high country.
proffessor brian cox has achieved something i very much wanted to study astro physics etc.he has cwertainly achjieved , this excellent book Wonders of the universe is absolutely amazingvery easy to read and understand. i am glad he took the time to relay to the readersall the (ormost of) the laws of nature.
simply a great book. hope to read more of hisASAP. working at CERN what a beautiful experience.
well done proffessor brian cox,great stuff, everybody should read it i reckon.what we are made of how we came about all explained in his book,what a treat we got when wrote this book.
thanbkyou mate your a gem.
cheers now Rob from Australia.

Very informative and well written
This book is delightful. Like its companion video series, it is part travelogue, part history and part down and dirty mind-blowing science. To tell his story, Cox travels to thoughtfully chosen locations around the globe to draw parallels between the archeology of our planet and its interconnectedness to all that there is in the universe.

Unlike the video series, the book gives Cox a platform to dive more deeply into the stories behind the luminaries and visionaries who made scientific discoveries throughout history. Cox's respect for the scientists who came before him is very apparent, as well as his infectious enthusiasm for his chosen field. Most entries in the book are concise, well-crafted standalone stories (2-6 pages in length) that easily lend themselves to a cup of coffee, a comfy chair and an open mind.

Cox has an unassuming and conversational manner for relating complex physics to our everyday world. Reading this book is like sitting down to a dinner table with Professor Cox and having a lively discussion about the timeless mysteries of our universe. It's truly a great read for anyone with a layperson's interest in physics, space, the cosmos and how our earthly home fits into it all.
