ASU Book Group: 'The Greatest Story Ever Told—So Far' by Lawrence Krauss

Cover of

The ASU Book Group's February 2018 reading selection is "The Greatest Story Ever Told—So Far: Why Are We Here?" by Lawrence M. Krauss. The book group is open to all in the ASU community and meets monthly from noon–1 p.m. in the Piper Writers House on ASU's Tempe campus. Authors are always present. A no-host luncheon follows at the University Club.

Synopsis: In a landmark, unprecedented work of scientific history, Krauss leads us to the furthest reaches of space and time, to scales so small they are invisible to microscopes, to the birth and rebirth of light, and into the natural forces that govern our existence. His unique blend of rigorous research and engaging storytelling invites us into the lives and minds of the remarkable, creative scientists who have helped to unravel the unexpected fabric of reality—with reason rather than superstition and dogma.

The book is available from 

Krauss is a Foundation Professor in the ASU School of Earth and Space Exploration.
