These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There is an embarrassment of books about the universe for the general reader, but few manage to pack so much, so elegantly, into such a compact space as this does. The book is generously illustrated. * The Guardian 09/02/02/ *
Coles takes you gently through everything from Blue Shift to parallel Universe in a thoroughly entertaining read * TNT Magazine *
a pleasure to read * New Scientist, 29/09/01 *
