It was a paperback book on physics that I was reading around 2004 that may have been a few years old then, it started off with subatomic particles and went on through physics to chaos theory. Relativity may have been early in the book. I think it was intended as a primer.

I read about quarks in there and the cover was black, maybe with a galaxy on the front- possibly a black hole diagram (maybe not). I want to say the guy who wrote it was young-ish. Certainly not Hawking.

I know this is not much to go on, but if you have any idea please let me know.

Thank you-

Scott
