Abstract

In this slender book, Peter Atkins outlines current understanding of the birth, life and death of both the universe and individuals. They are reasonable scientific descriptions, provided you do not mind his unconstrained musings on how the universe is really 'Nothing', or a whole chapter devoted to the decay and putrefaction that his body would suffer following his imagined death. Patricia Cornwell fans will feel right at home!
