"Published in connection with the distinguished television series, 'The Ring of Truth' is a refreshing voyage to the heartland of science. Full of delight in the scientific process made understandable, it takes the reader to the place where ideas begin, where tools are made, where the work is done. 'That world,' wrote the Morrisons, 'is full of surprises.'
"Throughtout, the quarry is not what we have learned about the universe but rather how we go in search of answers."
