it was amazing

This book has changed my perspective about everything I see, think, and do. It concisely and logically presents the theory (as of 1985) of how our atoms were formed and bonded from the time of the big bang until the present. It talks about why our terrestrial planet with its chemical makeup, atmosphere, and available elements were derived from our position in the galaxy, distance from the sun, etc. It also rates each of its own theories as to their likelihoods on scaled of 1-10. A little hard to follow at points and the diagrams are basically useless, but the material is amazing.
