About This Book
Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists in history,
wrote the modern classic A Brief History of Time to help nonscientists
understand the questions being asked by scientists today: Where did the universe
come from? How and why did it begin? Will it come to an end, and if so, how?
Hawking attempts to reveal these questions (and where we're looking for answers)
using a minimum of technical jargon. Among the topics gracefully covered are
gravity, black holes, the Big Bang, the nature of time, and physicists' search
for a grand unifying theory. This is deep science; these concepts are so vast
(or so tiny) as to cause vertigo while reading, and one can't help but marvel at
Hawking's ability to synthesize this difficult subject for people not used to
thinking about things like alternate dimensions. The journey is certainly worth
taking, for, as Hawking says, the reward of understanding the universe may be a
glimpse of "the mind of God." --Therese Littleton
"Lively and provocative-- Hawking clearly possesses a natural teacher's gift - easy, good-natured humor and an ability to illustrate highly complex propositions with analogies plucked from daily life."
-- The New York Times
"Charming and lucid--gives the general reader an opportunity to learn some deep science directly from the source-- [A book of] sunny brilliance."
-- The New Yorker
