Origins: The Scientific Story of Creation
Origins is the science book every single person should read, and should be part of every high school curriculum. Jim Baggott succeeds in making the story of the creation of our universe and the origins of our being a truly compelling story. Baggott writes in clear, elegant language for the scientist, the student, the aficionado, and they layman alike. Origins makes such staggering and fundamental concepts as special relativity an approachable topic by helping the reader see behind the curtain and take the journeys that lead to their discover and development. I cannot recall a science book I have enjoyed more, or have felt so compelled to recommend to anyone who will listen. Full marks.
