There is an excellent book on it called "Big Bang: The Origin of the Universe" by Simon Singh. It gives the history of how the theory was developed, the different people and their contributions, the arguments against it and how they were finally dismissed, etc. It is a good read and not overly technical. I highly recommend it.

Thank you both for the recommendations.
