Yes! The cover glows in the dark- how appropriate for this terrific book which takes atoms from their beginnings billions of years ago to our present time on earth.
The author injects humor here and there- also his chapter headings are a treat: One Hundred Million Years of Solitude; Things That Went Bump in the Night; The Galaxy Strikes Back; Through a Glass Darkly as examples.
This is the best book which gives an idea of the immense times involved.
Exciting!
