Synopsis

How to Build a Universe An Infinite Monkey Cage Adventure by Brian Cox, Robin Ince

Prof Brian Cox and Robin Ince take the musings of the great and the good of British science, producing an insight into the multifaceted subjects involved in building a Universe, with pearls of wisdom from leading scientists and comedians peppered throughout. Covering thousands of concepts and conundrums, they tackle everything from the Big Bang to parallel Universes, fierce creatures to extraterrestrial life, brain science to artificial intelligence.

Bringing together the best, most unusual and hilarious of the inquisitive minds that help shape and understand our world, from Neil deGrasse Tyson and Dara O Briain to Sir Patrick Stewart, Tim Minchin, Stephen Fry and more, How to Build a Universe is an illuminating and inspirational celebration of science - sometimes silly, sometimes astounding and very occasionally facetious.

Reviews

Praise for the BBC Radio 4 programme The Infinite Monkey Cage:

A witty and irreverent look at the world according to science. Independent

Praise for Professor Brian Cox:

Cox's romantic, lyrical approach to astrophysics all adds up to an experience that feels less like homework and more like having a story told to you. A really good story, too. Guardian

He bridges the gap between our childish sense of wonder and a rather more professional grasp of the scale of things. Independent

Engaging, ambitious and creative. Guardian

Professor Cox shows us the cosmos as we have never seen it before - a place full of the most bizarre and powerful natural phenomena. Sunday Express
