Good book if you are looking for divulgation of the latest physical theories on how the universe came to be. Much better than the latest books from Stephen Hawking, and with zero equations!.

Word of notice: As the author honestly explains on the first set of pages, he is using a definition for "nothing" that is not precisely "the lack of absolutely everything" but rather "the lack of somethings we take for granted exists everywhere, but still there is something that is subject at least to some physical laws". Given that, the author does a great job explaining how all the "something" we preceive came from that "nothing".

Richard Dawkins' afterword is totally expendable.
