A Universe from Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather than Nothing, by Lawrence Krauss (author), and Richard Dawkins (Afterword)  

The bestselling author and acclaimed physicist Lawrence Krauss offers a paradigm-shifting view of how everything that exists came to be in the first place.
 “Where did the universe come from? What was there before it? What will the future bring? And, finally, why is there something rather than nothing?”
 One of the few prominent scientists today to have crossed the chasm between science and popular culture, Krauss describes the staggeringly beautiful experimental observations and mind-bending new theories that demonstrate that not only can something arise from nothing, something will always arise from nothing. With a new preface about the significance of the discovery of the Higgs particle, A Universe from Nothing uses Krauss’s characteristic wry humor and wonderfully clear explanations to take us back to the beginning of the beginning, presenting the most recent evidence for how our universe evolved—and the implications for how it’s going to end.
 Provocative, challenging, and delightfully readable, this is a game-changing look at the most basic underpinning of existence and a powerful antidote to outmoded philosophical, religious, and scientific thinking.  https://www.amazon.com/Universe-Nothing-There-Something-Rather-ebook/dp/B004T4KQJS/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=LAURENCE+Kraus&qid=1604797617&s=digital-text&sr=1-1

Dr.  Lawrence Krauss is a world-renowned physicist, public intellectual and public advocate for science. He is also currently host of a video podcast, The Origins Podcast. He returns to the Think Tank to talk about several issues relating to science and the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. 

Among the topics we cover are how in times of crisis like this pandemic, we turn to scientists for a vaccines and instant cures for the virus. At the same time, funding for basic scientific research has been hard to sell in an era where the dominant political demand has been to cut taxes.We also discuss how the public seems all to ready to substitute its judgment for that of scientists when it hears reports of a potential cures for the pandemic. And politicians can be rewarded for “doing something” even where that “something” is based on scant scientific evidence.

The discussion is wide-ranging; Lawrence Krauss is always provocative and insightful.
