From the Publisher
Editors Note Cosmology: The Science of the Universe is a broad introduction to the science of modern cosmology, with emphasis on its historical origins. The first edition of this best-selling book received worldwide acclaim for its lucid style and wide-ranging exploration of the universe. This eagerly awaited second edition updates and greatly extends the first with seven new chapters that explore early scientific cosmology, Cartesian and Newtonian world systems, cosmology after Newton and before Einstein, special relativity, observational cosmology, inflation and creation of the universe. All chapters conclude with a section entitled Reflections containing provocative topics that will foster lively debate. The new Projects section, also at the end of each chapter, raises questions and issues to challenge the reader.
Annotation In this revealing biography of Andy Kaufman, the comedian's friend and business partner, Bob Zmuda, recreates the 1970s comedy scene of New York City in which these two eccentric men met, formed a solid friendship, and found fame. In addition to sharing personal anecdotes and shocking secrets, Zmuda describes Kaufman's grueling battle with cancer. MAN ON THE MOON, the film which documents Kaufman's life, was released shortly after this book was published in 1999.
