Read in August, 2009

Although this book doesn't really address order without design as alluded to by the sub-title, it has some pretty good content. I especially liked that it included an explanation of inflation, something you don't find in non-technical books. I am somewhat ambivalent regarding some of the current untested theories that were described, but at least that part of the book was fairly brief. It seems there's a new theory born every minute these days and I prefer to stick with the facts. But if you're looking for a condensed overview of the latest theories of string theory, this is a good source. So its not so bad to get an overview reading this versus something like a Brian Greene book. But since I prefer more fact based reading, I would recommend instead that you read Calibrating the Cosmos.
