More than six billion of us live on this planet now—growing rapidly toward seven billion. We’re separated by many differences: sex, race, religion, language, customs, and geography. Nevertheless, we also have some things in common. We breathe the same air. We all bleed the same red blood. We all need food, rest, and shelter. Oh, yes, we have one other thing familiar to each one of us—we all want happiness. Happiness—an elusive, sort of nebulous something that every one of us spends a lifetime pursuing. Some of us try to find it in things. We think that if only we could be rich, we’d be happy. When we’re rich, we have money. Money buys things, and things make us happy. Or do they? Others of us try to find happiness in becoming well-known—maybe even famous. If the masses adore us, surely, then we would be happy, right? Or maybe we look for happiness in being powerful and important, in plunging headlong into pleasure-seeking and entertainment, or in trying to find someone else who can make us happy. We want happiness. We crave it—all of us. Through all ages of history, we have desired it. Nevertheless, this inexpressible desire of all ages cannot be found in things, in fame, in power, in pleasure-seeking. It can be found only in a Person, and you can probably guess who that Person is. This book is His story. In Him is the end of your quest for happiness.

'A great educator as well as a great physicist?' Richard Dawkins In the beginning there was light but more than this, there was gravity. After that, all hell broke loose... This is how the story of the greatest intellectual adventure in history should be introduced - how humanity reached its current understanding of the universe, one that is far removed from the realm of everyday experience. Krauss connects the world we know with the invisible world all around us, which is removed from intuition and direct sensation. He explains our current understanding of nature and the struggle to construct the greatest theoretical edifice ever assembled, the Standard Model of Particle Physics -- and then to understand its implications for our existence. Writing in the critically acclaimed style of A Universe from Nothing, Krauss celebrates the beauty and wonders of the natural world and details our place within it and how this shapes our understanding of it. Krauss makes this story accessible through profiles of the scientists responsible for these advances, and clear explanations of their discoveries. Krauss takes us on a tour of science and the brilliant personalities who shaped it, often against political and religious indoctrination, enduring persecution and ostracism. Krauss creates a captivating blend of research and narrative to invite us into the lives and minds of these figures,creating a landmark work of scientific history.
