This book was very readable and contained many interesting possibilities for the beginning, middle and end of the universe. The one issue I had with the book was the minimal time spent explaining the last three minutes. I felt that information was rushed or not developed as well as the other areas of the book. Perhaps my novice level makes me want more depth when perhaps no expansion of the theories are currently developed. I was just expecting more about the last three minutes due to the title.
The information that was provided in the book was well researched and explained- if you are interested in physics, astronomy, origins of life and the future of the universe, I highly recommend the book.

Fascinating ReadReviewed in the United States on 1 January 2020
Fascinating read, well written and entertaining as well as informative. You may agree or disagree with his conclusions, but this book is well worth your time (as are his other books) if you're interested in the origins, and possible fate of this universe.
