This classic Big Bang text neatly describes what happened after the bang. Yet, until recently, particle physicists and cosmologists were stuck on many questions that the Big Bang Theory still couldn't answer, primarily: If matter can neither be created nor destroyed, how could so much matter arise from nothing at all? Alan Guth's Inflationary Universe Theory answers these vexing questions. When NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer satellite measured the non-uniformities of the cosmic background radiation for the first time in 1992, the patterns agreed exquisitely with the theory's predictions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Mind-blowing stuff * Sunday Times *
[Alan Guth's] remarkably lucid account is set to become a seminal text in cosmology...helping us up the learning curve without ever making recourse to unfriendly mathematical equations * Literary Review *
[Guth] conveys how science can be an intensely social and interactive activity, and the erratic and fitful way in which new ideas clarify * The Times *
One of the most fascinating and fundamental fields of human enquiry...handsomely rewards study * Financial Times *
