So far I've ignored all those video clips advertising new books. But I couldn't resist having a quick look at the web site for Bang! The complete history of the universe.
Why did I succumb to this one? Apart from the naff title (which has its attractions) the authors of the book are—drum roll—Brian May, Patrick Moore and Chris Lintott.
Brian May? Isn't he ...
... the guitarist from Queen? Yes. But he's also an astrophysicist.
Of course! Busy fellow.
Which takes us back to the earlier post where I was wondering what I've been doing with my life.
Not nearly enough. Obviously.
The site isn't terribly informative about the book but it does have a magnificently overblown sound track, as you might expect. (Guitar, piano and not even the merest hint of Patrick Moore's glockenspiel.)
