It’s a long time since I read a popular science book that so accurately communicates the science involved while maintaining the reader’s interest through the beauty of the written word… Afterglow of Creation excels at portraying science as a human endeavour where personalities, ideas, egos, politics and money all mix in the endeavour we know asastronomy… This book should be in every middle school, high school and public library and on the shelves of anyone interested in either astronomy or the nature of science. A wonderful story, brilliantly told.
