You might have come across Janna Levin's How the Universe Got Its Spots the same way that I did-by seeing it show up in io9's "20 Science Books Every Scifi Fan (and Writer) Should Read", or some such similar list of "must read" science books. Nutshell version? Levin brought us a beautiful book about modern cosmology, and about the life of a young scientist; and I recommend it to everyone with even a passing interest in science, and especially as a companion piece to Lee Smolin's The Trouble with Physics. - : Levin's and Smolin's book should be distributed as a box-set.
Her engaging writing style and excellent examples makes complex topics such as Einstein's theories easier to understand. It's interesting to learn how much we know and how much we still don't know about our universe. Is the universe finite or infinite? We really don't know.

How the Universe Got its Spots, subtitled Diary of a Finite Time in a Finite Space, is Janna Levin’s first book. Written in a diary format and initiated by a desire to explain to her mother what she does – I’m writing to you because I know you’re curious but afraid to ask – Levin sets out to answer the question ‘is the universe infinite?’. Or at least to show her mother, and us, why this question is so intriguing that it’s worth leading a rootless and chaotic life that leaves Levin constantly wondering whether she has her priorities right.
In the remainder of How the Universe Got Its Spots, which is unbearably beautiful in both intellectual elegance and stylistic splendor, Levin goes on to explore questions of quantum relativity and freewill, death and black holes, spacetime and Wonderland, and more.

As Levin sets out to determine how big ''really big'' may be, she gives us an intimate look at the day-to-day life of a globe-trotting physicist, complete with jet lag and romantic disturbances.
