NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

THIRTEEN EXTRAORDINARY ESSAYS SHED NEW LIGHT ON THE MYSTERIES OF THE UNIVERSE—AND ON ONE OF THE MOST BRILLIANT THINKERS OF OUR TIME.
 
In his phenomenal bestseller A Brief History of Time, Stephen Hawking literally transformed the way we think about physics, the universe, reality itself. In these thirteen essays and one remarkable extended interview, the man widely regarded as the most brilliant theoretical physicist since Einstein returns to reveal an amazing array of possibilities for understanding our universe.

Building on his earlier work, Hawking discusses imaginary time, how black holes can give birth to baby universes, and scientists’ efforts to find a complete unified theory that would predict everything in the universe. With his characteristic mastery of language, his sense of humor and commitment to plain speaking, Stephen Hawking invites us to know him better—and to share his passion for the voyage of intellect and imagination that has opened new ways to understanding the very nature of the cosmos.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from INCREDIBLE! Hawking is the greatest scientific writer of all time! Yes, of all time! He explains what is in his mind with the most simplistic expressions.This book is an example of this. It is an example of how the man who lost his ability to move, is still able to infatuate everyone with his mind. I loved this book, and I recommend it to everyone. If you have any sort of respect or interest for physics, than do not pass up on it. By the way, this is earlier Stephen Hawking.
