Winner of the 2017 PROSE Award in Cosmology & Astronomy, Association of American Publishers One of Symmetry Magazine's Physics Books of 2016 "With an insider's insight and a storyteller's eye for detail, Gott ... explores the ways scientists have worked to reveal the large-scale structure of our universe... Mixing accessible science with entertaining anecdotes and personal stories, Gott offers a thorough, vivid, and fascinating look at the cosmic web that makes up our universe."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "The Cosmic Web is not just a well-told story about the frontiers of cosmological knowledge. It is also an inspiration to explore them further."--Michael Blanton, Nature "Weaving together personal anecdotes with physics and math, Princeton astrophysicist J. Richard Gott's The Cosmic Web chronicles the nearly 100-year quest to understand the anatomy of the universe... Gott brings detailed insight to how our view of the cosmos has changed, providing a thorough accounting of how cosmologists arrived at these revelations."--Christopher Crockett, Science News "[M]ust reading for anyone interested in cosmology and the universe's large-scale structure. [The Cosmic Web] is a magnificent achievement."--David Eicher, Astronomy Magazine "With a style that's rich in fascinating detail, and bolstered by personal memories and anecdotes, The Cosmic Web delivers everything we need in a book on this subject."--Alastair Gunn, BBC Sky at Night Magazine "An extraordinary book guiding the reader through the large scale of the Universe and the structure scientists encounter whilst looking at the Universe as a whole."--Read about Science "I enjoyed this book hugely. It should be on the shelf of anyone who is intrigued by why the Universe looks the way it does."--Alan Longstaff, Astronomy Now
