Taking a cue from William Blake, Marcus Chown, cosmology consultant for New Scientist, shows how we can 'see a world in a grain of sand'. In this book he chooses familiar features of the mundane world - your reflection in a window, the heat of the sun on your face, how a cause always precedes an effect - and draws on cutting-edge science to explain how they reveal profound truths about the ultimate nature of reality. Short-listed for the 2010 Royal Society Science Book Prize. Slightly off-mint.
