A Universe From Nothing

Here's another one I just finished. Pretty informative and a very easy read, although it seemed a little short for the subject. It was fun to read something by a scientist who doesn't like string theory after the last one, which was very string theory-heavy.

The only drawback is that it seems like the guy spends a little bit of time in every chapter trying to reason with professional philosophers and theologians, a masochistic exercise I'd rather not witness. I suppose it's understandable that he feels some obligation to defend the title at least a little bit, although, even if you're convinced that "nothing" is the wrong word, it doesn't really affect anything important.
