A Universe from Nothing
Why There Is Something Rather than Nothing
Lawrence M. Krauss
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Bestselling author and acclaimed physicist Lawrence Krauss offers a paradigm-shifting view of how everything that exists came to be in the first place.
“Where did the universe come from? What was there before it? What will the future bring? And finally, why is there something rather than nothing?”
One of the few prominent scientists today to have crossed the chasm between science and popular culture, Krauss describes the staggeringly beautiful experimental observations and mind-bending new theories that demonstrate not only can something arise from nothing, something will always arise from nothing. With a new preface about the significance of the discovery of the Higgs particle, A Universe from Nothing uses Krauss’s characteristic wry humor and wonderfully clear explanations to take us back to the beginning of the beginning, presenting the most recent evidence for how our universe evolved—and the implications for how it’s going to end.
Provocative, challenging, and delightfully readable, this is a game-changing look at the most basic underpinning of existence and a powerful antidote to outmoded philosophical, religious, and scientific thinking.

Mine boggling! I could hardly put it down. There are interesting facts on every page. I am going to read it again to better digest it.
The book is very interesting and funny. The comment Krauss made about not asking American high school students a previous reviewer mentioned was funny if you knew that American high school students don't rank well internationally. It was a joke! Lighten up people.
Some of the book was a little dense and hard to understand, but reading the book was well worth it because a lot of the information is really amazing. Please physicists, find out more because I am dying to know these unanswered questions of the universe.
is slightly arrogant, so it's not too surprising....
