Reviews

"He can explain the complexities of cosmological physics with an engaging combination of clarity and wit--His is a brain of extraordinary power."--New York Review of Books

"Hawking has succeeded in writing two intertwined books, one a highly readable and popular account of the role of time in physics, the other an in-depth review--What makes all this so interesting is Hawking's ability to convoy the essential physics in words alone."--Physics Today "In his first work of popular science, Stephen Hawking proves himself to be a master of vivid clarity--It's difficult to think of anyone else living who could have put these mathematically formidable subjects more clearly."--Chicago Tribune "A masterful summary of what physicists now think the world is made of and how it got that way."--Wall Street journal "This book marries a child's wonder to a genius's intellect. We journey into Hawking's universe while marvelling at his mind."--Sunday Times, London "The famous theoretical physicist best known for his inquiries into the nature of black holes--turns out to be as skilled a popular writer as he is a mathematician--The result is probably the best single book on astrophysics for the common reader. Thank you, Dr. Hawking!"--Booklist "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."--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."--New Yorker
