The Whole Shebang
There's a chapter on symmetries in particle physics, which leads on to the theory of inflation. This is followed by speculations of how the universe could have arisen from nothingness, and a look at quantum weirdness. The final chapters are philosophical musings on our place in the universe.
A warning to the reader - sometimes the book is rather muddled. For instance saying that curved space implies a fourth dimension (i.e. time) is nonsense, and his example of an EPR device would allow faster than light communication. But Ferris is clearly enthusiastic about the subject, and so the book is highly readable. Hence if you accept that it isn't a book to teach you cosmology then you'll probably enjoy reading it.
