The Address Book: Our Place in the Scheme of Things

About the Book

"At the start of each school term, at the age of about 10, I did something that I suppose a million other 10-year-olds have done..." Following this simplest of patterns, taking each line of the address as a starting point, Tim Radford explores our place in the scheme of things – why we are attached to a particular geographical place and what significance do we have when faced with the realms of astronomy and astrophysics.Fascinating, entertaining and completely original, The Address Book tackles some of the most fundamental questions facing us, and allows us see ourselves completely afresh.
