Top ten Sunday Times Bestseller

`Engaging, ambitious and creative' Guardian

Where are we? Are we alone? Who are we? Why are we here? What is our future?

Human Universe tackles some of the greatest questions that humans have asked to try and understand the very nature of ourselves and the Universe in which we live.

Through the endless leaps of human minds, it explores the extraordinary depth of our knowledge today and where our curiosity may lead us in the future. With groundbreaking insight it reveals how time, physics and chemistry came together to create a creature that can wonder at its own existence, blessed with an unquenchable thirst to discover not just where it came from, but how it can think, where it is going and if it is alone.

Accompanies the acclaimed BBC TV series.

Human Universe Reviews


Praise for Professor Brian Cox:

`Cox's romantic, lyrical approach to astrophysics all adds up to an experience that feels less like homework and more like having a story told to you. A really good story, too.' Guardian

`He bridges the gap between our childish sense of wonder and a rather more professional grasp of the scale of things.' Independent

`If you didn't utter a wow watching the TV, you will while reading the book.' The Times

`In this book of the acclaimed BBC2 TV series, Professor Cox shows us the cosmos as we have never seen it before - a place full of the most bizarre and powerful natural phenomena.' Sunday Express

`Will entertain and delight ... what a priceless gift that would be.' Independent on Sunday
