This book deals with information theory spanning across different areas of science such as Quantum Physics, Quantum Computing, Genetics, Thermodynamics. It describes how information underlies everything in the universe and the relationship between entropy of the universe and information. it takes into account Shannon's information theory introduced in 1948 and discusses contemprerary developments in the information theory field. it discusses how the universe originated from bigbang and how life evolved for the last 4.5 billion years that the Earth was formed. More over, it deals with new concepts in the field of quantum physics like quantum entanglement and quantum tunneling . it also discusses the possibilities of sending information at the speed of light or more than that. it describes the Boltzmann's equations for stastical systems, maxwell's daemon, turing machine. this book touches upon a little bit of mathematic equations to explain about the quantum computing, how to build quantum logic gates and further developments in that field . it talks about astronomical objects like blackholes, quasars and the thermo-dynamics operating behind them. it touches upon genetics as genes carry a huge amount of information in their DNA to shape up an organism.
