Born in London in 1946,Paul Davies is a physicist whose research interests are in the field of of Cosmology,Quantum Field Theory, and Astrobiology.In this book , which was first published in 1993, he raises the same questions and struggles of humanity throughout  history.The questions of ” How” and “Why” we are here. He also discusses and questions whether ” God” would be a solution.He isn’t a theist but according to many reviews and also from what I read in this book, he clearly indicates that he does believe in something else beyond our universe,but not the god we know through religions.You don’t have to be a scientist to read this book , it is very much easy to understand and I also recommend it.

" what does it mean? What is Man that we might be party to such privilege? I cannot believe that our existence in this universe is  a mere quirk of fate, an accident of history, and incidental blip in the great cosmic drama.Our involvement is too intimate."
