FROM ONE OF THE MOST BRILLIANT MINDS OF OUR TIME COMES A BOOK THAT CLARIFIES HIS MOST IMPORTANT IDEAS Stephen Hawking’s worldwide bestseller A Brief History of Time remains a landmark volume in scientific writing. But for readers who have asked for a more accessible formulation of its key concepts—the nature of space and time, the role of God in creation, and the history and future of the universe—A Briefer History of Time is Professor Hawking’s response. Although “briefer,” this book is much more than a mere explanation of Hawking’s earlier work. A Briefer History of Time both clarifies and expands on the great subjects of the original, and records the latest developments in the field—from string theory to the search for a unified theory of all the forces of physics. Thirty-seven full-color illustrations enhance the text and make A Briefer History of Time an exhilarating and must-have addition in its own right to the great literature of science and ideas.

Stephen Hawking's explanations of physics and the mathematics attached thereto were far more useful to me than anything I learned at school. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to those interested in having a layman's understanding of quantum mechanics, string theory and other scientific discoveri...
This is the new version of the book once called the most widely-owned book no one's ever read. And it's pretty thick stuff. I think there are other authors - Greene's "Elegant Universe" comes to mind - who do a better job explaining these tough concepts than Hawking does.Keep in mind, though, that...
