  1. A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking is about modern physics for general readers Its aim is not just listing some topics, but introducing modern physics by examining current scientific answers, although not complete, to fundamental questions like Where did we come from Why is the universe the way it is Was there the beginning of time Is there an ultimate theory that can explain everything We don t have such a theory yet I have read the first edition when I was a high school student around [...]


  2. I believe that A Brief History of Time was the late Stephen Hawking s first book for the general reader I can see why it was a best seller worldwide because Stephen was a very entertaining and humorous writer His explanations of concepts in Astrophysics that I had found inexplicable were a lot clearer by the time I finished reading A Brief History of Time I would recommend that a person read the last edition of the book because it best reflects the current thinking in Astrophysics The man who wa [...]


  3. Hawking s book is the most understandable description of the physics of time and matter that I ve encountered Not a text book on physics it s an explanation of classical relativity and quantum mechanics for laymen that focuses on the origin and future of the universe It describes what scientists have discovered so far and how their thinking has changed over time, and then discusses the possible futures that seem to be implied.Relativity and quantum mechanics are not easy subjects, but this book [...]

  6. Stephen Hawking summarises the difficulty of his book right at the end Science has become ever complex and specialised All the grand, universal theories of A Brief History are actually the work of experts who only have time to understand their small patch This breaking down of knowledge into pieces has been going on for centuries, gathering pace after 1776 when, in his Wealth Of Nations, Adam Smith described the future of industry as the division of labour Then in 1988 Stephen Hawking comes alon [...]
