This book I decided to read after 'A Universe from Nothing' by Laurence Krauss since I wished to cross-reference the accounts. If you're a layman it can prove tricky to follow all the stages, particle interactions and units of measure. So you may have to re-read chunks of this book or indeed the whole text again. That said, there are some truly illuminating sections where the 'Eureka' light ignites in your brain. For this reason alone, worth taking the plunge.

A very clear explanation of the facts and a good speculation of what was about to happen next. What is fascinating is that Weinberg asks questions that he couldn't have answered back then, but that led to a lot of the outcome as has been proven experiment today. Sometimes the question is more important than the answer itself.

A classic documentary on the origin of the universe 26 février 2000
Par D. Roberts - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Stephen Weinberg received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Harvard university and has taught at the university of Texas for decades. He won the Nobel prize in physics in 1979 and has worked with such distinguished personages as the late Richard P. Feynman. In short, he is one of the leading minds in his field.
The First Three Minutes is an unusual book in astronomy / cosmology because it is now over 20 years old & yet it is STILL one of the classics of the "story" of the universe for the layman & non-expert. The book takes us on an exhilerating journey all the way back to the Plank epoch (10^-43 seconds after the Big Bang). Weinberg also deals with Einstein's theory of Relativity (which predicted the Big Bang), the Hubble Red Shift (the discovery that the universe is expanding) as well as the detection of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) in the 1960's by Ralph Wilson and Arno Penzias. All three of these factors, plus numerous other details all form the foundation for the way most scientists think about our universe (presently known as the Big Bang theory).
One of the things about Weinberg that I admire is that, like Carl Sagan, he concedes that he MIGHT be wrong, but that what he has to work with is the best paradigm available. This is brutally honest & also quite a refreshing approach. I tire quickly of reading science books that are written by individuals who are so conceited as to believe they know everything there is to know. One certainly does not have to worry about that type of arrogance with Weinberg.
So, if you even have a passing interest in cosmology, I would HIGHLY recommend this book. The book may be especially appealing to many people as it is 150 pages in & out (anyone who has ever browsed the science shelf at their local bookstore can readily see that there have been far longer books written on this topic). But oh, what a plethora of info that Weinberg furnishes in those 150 pages!
All in all, this is a very readable book which deals with a quite recondite topic.

You don't have to be a physicist to understand this book 20 février 2002
Par Muddy Moe - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I am a true layman, having had NO education in physics beyond high school "physical science." However, I have read Hawking's "Brief History of Time," Timothy Ferris' "The Whole Shebang," and read Scientific American. I say this to point out that you do not need to bring a great deal of knowledge to the table to appreciate this book, provided you have some aptitude for cosomology. And, sure, it helps to have a passing acquaintance with General Relativity, Special Relativity, and some of the basics of particle physics. I can't imagine anybody would pick up this book if they didn't already have some passing interest in cosmology and had read a few magazine articles.
The text is clear and, considering the subject matter, amazingly brief. The author does not dummy down the mathematics too much either, which is a fault of some books written for laymen. On the other hand, he also doesn't overwhelm the reader with mathematics either. He wisely chooses to include a mathematics appendix and lets you either explore the math or not.
Quantum mechanics and general relatively are not particularly "intuitive" topics, so any beginning reader is going to have to read this slowly, carefully, and with some patience. But the book is as clear and open to lay people as I've yet encountered.
And, frankly, I think any educated lay person should have a BASIC understanding of the principles in this book. For the curious, this is a great place to start. And even if you've been through the "story" before, this book is great for reinforcing the story of the birth of the universe in a concise, holistic layout.

Unique Subject, 5 avril 2005
Par J. head - Publié sur

There is an acute shortage of the accounts of the early universe for the layman. This book covers the first few minutes of the universe written by a Nobel prize winning physists, Steven Weinberg. All in all, this text is a very good expose' and really not outdated for the casual reader. It covers string theory, the pros and cons for an open and closed universe, and dark matter question. The meat of the book is based on the fact that as the original universe cooled, seconds after the big bang and sub-atomic particles were allowed to form. "If" the big "If" this primordial ball attained equilibrium then many assumptions can be made from present day evidence directly back to early primordial conditions. The cooling proto-universe had particle formation ratios and radiation emitting frequencies that can be evidenced today. As the universe cooled additional particles were allowed to form and various radiation frequencies were allowed to escape.

The author Steven Weinberg has a very natural style of writing, translating the extremes of physical theory into a step- by-step progression of the beginning universe. A very rewarding book.

A classic of twentieth century science 23 novembre 2004
Par Jill Malter - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Why do I still like this book, written back in the 1970s, long before, say, the discovery that the expansion of the universe is accelerating?

Well, I like it because it is well written. What it says is solid and valid. There's very little speculation, and when something speculative is said, it is clearly labeled as such.

This explains what we Know about the Big Bang. Not what we think happened, but what we can prove happened. What we know because we see the expansion of the universe, because we see the cosmic microwave background, and because we see the leftover helium from Big Bang nucleosynthesis in those awesome three or four minutes in which our universe was truly a hot place.

You need very little background to appreciate this book: just an interest in what happened in our Universe in less than four minutes, more than ten billion years ago. And even if you know plenty of physics and astronomy, if you haven't read this book, it's worth the time it takes to read it.

Steven Weinberg's book is the mother of all popular, but scientific, tales about the history of the universe.

He was the first to explain comprehensively in a layman's language the 'Big Bang' origin of the whole universe, when this theory was still not taken seriously by everybody (there are still doubters). Religious opposition was still rampant.

His tale is based on Einstein's theory of relativity and two discoveries: one by Hubble (the red shift - Doppler effect in the whole universe) and one by Wilson and Penzias (the radio-noise remains of the Big bang).

He poses the still unanswered question of the critical density of the matter in the universe and concomitantly its ultimate fate: heat crunch, cold death or continued stable expansion.

He exposes also pregnantly the real place of our tiny world and its inhabitants in the whole cosmos with its billions of Milky Ways.

Of course, since its publication new discoveries (black holes ...) and new complementary propositions (string theory ...) have been made, but this book is still highly recommendable for beginners.

A masterpiece in its own, this book's huge success inspired many followers and gave the start for a long list of more or less popular scientific works to the benefit of all.
