Contents
The greatest quest in all science -- Our goal is nothing less than a complete description of the universe we live in -- You shouldn't believe everything you read -- The big question was, was there a beginning or not? -- Black hole explosions? -- Was it all just a lucky chance? -- In all my travels, I have not managed to fall off the edge of the world -- It's turtles all the way down -- The field of baby universes is in its infancy but growing fast -- Is the end in sight for theoretical physics?
