  • Just found this book at my library and I must say I am impressed! The illustrations were pretty amazing, to say the least. The book seems pretty well written and explains scales of enormous universe shattering dimensions down to the tiniest subatomic realm. Anyone interested in science will enjoy this book. Kudos to Caleb Scharf and Ron Miller!


  • This was an awesome journey that gave me a sense of being a part of a universe aware of itself. The trip goes in a very logical order and the writing is clear and entertaining as well. It has many illustrations. I read this in ebook format on a tablet so that I could zoom in on the images and see them in color. The science is made understandable, or at least as much as is possible when we get down to those very small bits.



  • There's nothing in the least pretentious or precious about this book. It's a straightforward tour through over forty orders of magnitude, from universal-scale gravitating structures to quarks and then on down to the Planck length, the theoretically smallest distance. In many ways this resembles a 1980's popular science book for early teens – and given how much I enjoyed those at that age, it's hardly a surprise that I loved this one too.


  • I must have gone in with the wrong expectations because I was pretty disappointed :/I love the idea for this book and there were some cool infographics. However, the content leaves a lot to be desired and many of the illustrations were only borderline scientific. I did love the last few pages that list the sizes of a bunch of things from particles to the human egg to galaxies.


  • This book altered my mind. I had never really considered my place in the universe, but The Zoomable Universe shows how one is both insignificant, and an essential part at the same time. It features a well-explained story, wonderful photography, infographics, and art work. They work together seamlessly. 5/5 on
