Origins: Fourteen Billion Years of Cosmic Evolution Reissue Edition, Kindle Edition
“Who can ask for better cosmic tour guides to the universe than Drs. Tyson and Goldsmith?” —Michio Kaku, author of Hyperspace and Parallel Worlds
Our true origins are not just human, or even terrestrial, but in fact cosmic. Drawing on recent scientific breakthroughs and the current cross-pollination among geology, biology, astrophysics, and cosmology, ?Origins? explains the soul-stirring leaps in our understanding of the cosmos. From the first image of a galaxy birth to Spirit Rover's exploration of Mars, to the discovery of water on one of Jupiter's moons, coauthors Neil deGrasse Tyson and Donald Goldsmith conduct a galvanizing tour of the cosmos with clarity and exuberance.

But being a very difficult subject, I would still rate the book as a 4 stars because I still learned a lot from reading it and the style of writing of the authors is enjoyable.
Theories and concepts are well explained and abordable by the amateur reader.
