BANG is an eyewitness account of the evolution of the universe from the Big Bang to now. It is unique because it is told as a chronological story - by Yog, a quark - who was there from the start.

It is unique because it is told as a chronological story - by Yog, a quark - who was there from the start. Quarks are the oldest existing particles. They know all - since everything is made of quarks and electrons. Being now part of an earthling, Yog knows the peculiarities of humans too. It relates evolution as it really happened. Yog determines the key event that distinguished man from beast and the major problem of the planet at present - overpopulation. It finds that earthlings have overtaken biological evolution by technological development and predicts that evolution does not end with todays Homo sapiens but continues towards a more rational being which he calls Homo prudens. BANG is written in plain language for the average person - from teenagers to pensioners. The text is livened-up by a series of cartoon-like sketches. There are no formulae or diagrams to avoid the appearance of a science book.
