In this immensely readable book, noted cosmologist Rocky Kolb reveals the very human struggles of astronomy superstars seeking cosmic truths while lost in the clouds of confusion. Punctuated by the author's razor-sharp wit, this book provides anyone curious about science with a behind-the-scenes peek into the discovery process—it's not exactly the scientific method you learned in school.
Rocky Kolb, founding head of the NASA/Fermilab Theoretical Astrophysics Group and University of Chicago professor, combines art, humor, music, and philosophy in writings and lectures about cosmology for the general public.
