Description
How does the brain work? Does time really exist? Why is there something rather than nothing? Covering topics that range from evolution to capitalism, and from sex to quantum theory, the bestselling author of The Matchbox That Ate a Forty-Ton Truck and Afterglow of Creation uses his lucid wit and solid grasp of science to explain the basics of existence, stopping along the way to show us why the Atlantic Ocean is widening by a thumb's length each year, why sewing was the crucial advantage that humans had over Neanderthals, and why we are all living in a giant hologram.

"Reading a well-written popular science book is one of the great pleasures of modern times, and this guided tour through life, the universe, and everything affords that pleasure in abundance."The Independent (UK)
