What the reviewers are saying:

“A good introduction to a complex topic.”

—Kay Weisman, Booklist

“With alliterative poetic sentiments that curve across the pages, Savage offers a brief history of the universe that emphasizes interconnection. … Dreamy artwork has the feel of black velvet paintings from the 1970s and seems to glow … [A] connecting end note moves with the conclusion.”
