4 stars rather than 5 just because it's a rather old book now and probably out of date.
It's pretty heavy going, I understood most of the text, about half of the illustrations, and almost none of the equations. And there are allot of equations. As with other Gamow books, I feel compelled to brush up on my maths so I can understand this better. Gonna keep up with my Khan Academy courses and try to get my brain into better shape.🧠💪🏻

It was my first ever science book written by a foreign writer. I still read it time to time. Even after 60+ years of publication this book is still relevant and educative. George Gamow was one of the best popular science writers.
