The Goldilocks Enigmais Paul Davies' spectacular and eagerly awaited return to cosmology. Here he tackles all the 'big questions' and introduces the latest discoveries that have allowed scientists to piece together the story of the universe in unprecedented detail. And he explains why, despite all this, cosmologists are more divided than ever. Why is everything just right for life on earth? And how have we tried to explain this? How has belief shaped the scientific debate? What do we really know about our place in the universe? Paul Davies decodes the real science and gets to the very heart of our understanding of the universe.

I read this book a few years ago after hearing about it while reading a book by Anthony Flew. If you have heard about Flew this book explains some of the ideas about why he changed his mind. I am now ready to read this book again. The ideas explained in the book are much discussed in scientific circles.
