A Universe from Nothing
Why There Is Something Rather than Nothing
Lawrence M. Krauss
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books 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.

Everything indeed out of nothing
Great read for anyone with an open mind; closed minds already believe that everything came out from nothing, only they call nothing God.
The book's formatting is uneven and awful at some places, and there are some typos, but the content outweighs the presentation.
Let the philosophers and theologians complain all they want. Krauss does not make the mistake of getting bogged down too much in the philosophical side of "nothing". Instead he concerns himself with the reality of nature and explores how a universes can emerge from empty space. In the process, he gives the reader lots of information on the state of the art of astrophysics.
This book contains scientific information. No, it doesn't point to a Creator, but so what? I want to know the true nature of the universe. Thank you Mr. Krauss for making this information accessible to the general public.

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.
