A very readable history of the people involved in the "Stardust Revolution" looking at the origins of the Universe, Galaxies, Solar System and ultimately Homo Sapiens. Well worth the read for everyone interested in a scientific look at the origin of molecules.

Great read. First the Copernican revolution, then the Darwinian revolution, now Astro-chemical revolution. Makes a good case - science wins every time.

This is a marvellous book. Definitely a must read for anyone interested in science, even science fiction (which it is not). I thought I knew almost everything about astronomy and related subjects, but this book presents much exciting unexpected astronomy related material (also biology, chemistry, geology – all of science) in an organized, very readable form. This is a book that gives a lot of not-publicized recent discoveries that are really tremendously interesting. Reading this book gives you a completely new perspective on the universe, life and everything in it and about it. Truly a stardust revoluton. Orland Hooge
