Read full description of the books:
Light on science, heavy on the history of cosmology.
It's a nice, short read.
There is, however, one horrible mistake.
Ferris credits Christian creation mythology with contributing the idea of a beginning to time.
There is no historical (or logical) basis for this.
The theory that the universe began a finite time in the past was a natural outcome of the distance-correlated redshift of extra-galactic objects.
It is irrelevant to the history of scientific progress what beliefs some desert religion happen to hold before the invention of the telescope.
Religion can NEVER contribute scientific progress.
It can only HINDER science by defaming (Charles Darwin), torturing (Galileo Galilei), and outright killing (Giordano Bruno) scientific thinkers.
