New History of the Universe eBook released at bargain price

To satisfy the increasing interest in “Big History”, Penny Press is today publishing its new eBook “History of the Universe” by Wyken Seagrave at the bargain price of only $1.99.
June 11, 2012 - PRLog -- We are all curious about where we came from. By reviewing knowledge gained from a wide range of sciences during the past fifty years, Wyken Seagrave has pieced together the story of how we arrived here. Starting from the Big Bang he traces the way matter organised itself on both the largest and the smallest of scales.

The History of the Universe integrates a wide range of scientific, historical and social knowledge into a single unified story which not only shows us how we fit into the world around us but also uses the lessons of the past to make predictions about the future.

Seagrave has carefully selected the information which he covers to provide a succinct yet encyclopaedic view of history. The first half of the book tells the story in chronological order. The second half is a reference section which provides a glossary of key terms, with links to external sources of information.

The ebook is 5.2 megabytes in size and its text is extensively illustrated with over 300 diagrams and there are comprehensive links which allow for easy cross-referencing electronic readers. Seagrave introduces two innovative models, SoccEarth and PennySystem, to help the reader get a physical feeling for very small and very large objects.

This readable and accessible book is ideal both for the general reader wishing to gain an insight into science and history, as well as a reader for integrated science or Big History courses in schools or colleges It sells at a fraction of the price of other comparable books.

The book can be purchased from or from Amazon’s Kindle website.
