About the book:

Most scientists know, even if they don't admit it, that they are not completely objective, dispassionate seekers after truth. Astrophysicist Michael Hawkins rips off any remaining mask to reveal science, red in tooth and claw: "cosmology really is a seriously emotional issue, and can arouse irrational passions in otherwise intelligent and sensible men and women." Hawkins expounds his own cosmological theories (revolutionary if true, though by no means widely accepted) while giving a passionate tour of modern astrophysics, especially as expounded by Steven Weinberg and Fred Hoyle, and of the philosophy of science, including the theories of Richard Dawkins and Ludwig Wittgenstein. Hunting Down the Universe is not for the fainthearted or credulous, but you will not be bored.
