Lawrence Krauss has a talent for writing a survey that makes a lot of stuff easier to understand. He's a world-class cosmologist and physicist too, as well as talented writer. There was a conference/workshop of NEUTRINO EXPERIMENTALISTS in Venice and they invited Krauss to give a relaxed overview of the big picture of how neutrinos fit into COSMOLOGY.

Since neutrino experimentalists are not cosmologists, his talk has to communicate across fields and be very basic. I found it remarkably informative and intuitive---also just 10 pages.

Like to share this in case anyone's interested:
