From the Publisher

"Two Books in One!
The Illustrated A Brief History of Time
In the years since its publication in 1988, Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time has established itself as a landmark volume in scientific writing and an international publishing phenomenon. The book was on the cutting edge of what was then known about the nature of the universe, but since that time there have been extraordinary advances in the technology of both the micro- and macrocosmic worlds. These observations have confirmed many of Professor Hawking's theoretical predictions in the first edition of this book.
Eager to bring to his original text the new knowledge revealed by these many ovservations, as well as his own most recent research, for this expanded edition Professor Hawking prepared a new introduction to the book, wrote an entirely new chapter on wormholes and time travel, and updated the orginial text. In addition, this edition is enhanced throughout with more than 240 full-color illustrations, including satelite images, photographs made possible by spectacular technological advances such as the Hubble Space Telescope, and computer-generated images of three- and four-dimensional realities. A classic work that now brigns to the reader the latest understanding of cosmology, The Illustrated A Brief History of Time is the story of the ongoing serach for the tantalizing secrets at the heart of time and space.

The Universe in a Nutshell
In this book, Stephen Hawking takes us to the cutting edge of theoretical physics, where truth is often stranger than fiction, to explain in layman's terms the principles that control our universe.
Like many in the community of theoretical physics, Professor Hawking is seeking to uncover the grail of science - the elusive Theory of Everything that lies at the heart of the cosmos. In his accessible and often playful style, he guides us on his search to uncover the secrets of the universe - from super gravity to supersymmetry, from quantum theory to M-theory, from holography to duality. He takes us to the wild frontiers of science and lets us behind the scenes of one of his most exciting intellectual adventures as he seeks to ""combine Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and Richard Feynman's idea of multiple histories into one complete unified theory that will describe everything that happens in the universe.""
With characteristic exuberance, Professor Hawking invites us to be fellow travelers on this extraordinary journey through spacetime. Copious four-color illustrations help clarify this journey into a surreal wonderland where particles, sheets, and strings move in eleven dimensions and where the original cosmic seed from which our universe sprang was a tiny nut.
The Universe in a Nutshell is essential reading for all of us who want to understand the universe in which we live. Like its companion volume, A Brief History of Time, it conveys the excitement felt within the scientific community as the secrets of the universe reveal themselves.
20 cm x 26 cm 216 page hardcover."
