Reviews

True, Hawking here aims to provide a less technically complex version of his famed A Brief History of Time. But he's also updated the content to reflect the very latest research. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Praise for the original edition of A Brief History of Time "[Hawking] can explain the complexities of cosmological physics with an engaging combination of clarity and wit. . . . His is a brain of extraordinary power."--The New York Review of Books "Lively and provocative . . . Mr. Hawking clearly possesses a natural teacher's gifts--easy, good-natured humor and an ability to illustrate highly complex propositions with analogies plucked from daily life."--The New York Times "Even as he sits helpless in his wheelchair, his mind seems to soar ever more brilliantly across the vastness of space and time to unlock the secrets of the universe."--Time "This book marries a child's wonder to a genius's intellect. We journey into Hawking's universe while marvelling at his mind."--The Sunday Times (London) "A masterful summary of what physicists now think the world is made of and how it got that way."--The Wall Street Journal "Charming and lucid . . . [a book of] sunny brilliance."--The New Yorker
