A Fortunate Universe: Life in a Finely Tuned Cosmos by Geraint F. Lewis and Luke A. Barnes

About two-third physics and chemistry.  Carbon, neutrinos, inflation in the early universe, what Albert Einstein thought was his biggest mistake, what would make a universe dull, and more.  All discussing what tweaking the free parameters would do to this universe and life in it.  Much clarification of the Weak and Strong Anthropic Principles.

And then discussing questions this would raise, including the philosophical ones.
