Description-
  • "Lively and provocative... Mr. Hawking clearly possesses a natural teacher's gifts-easy, good-natured humor and an ability to illustrate highly complex proposition with analogies plucked from daily life." -The New York Times

    "Charming and Lucid...( A book of) sunny brilliance". - The New Yorker

    "This book marries a child's wonder to a genius intellect. We journey into Hawking's universe while marveling at his mind -The Sunday Time (London).

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

About the Author-
  • Stephen Hawking holds Newton's chair as Lucasian Professor oof Mathematics at Cambridge University. He is the author of the New York Time bestsellers A Brief history of Time and the Universe in a Nutshell.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine In his narration Michael Jackson changes his rhythm and volume, sometimes laughing with asides, while talking of the Big Bang, negative energy, and the elusive unified field theory. He also demonstrates a facility with a plethora of scientific and mathematical terms. If we can forgive him for pronouncing the "p" in Ptolomy so many times, we find he adds a pleasant vitality to a scientific audiobook. Hawking, an expert on space-time, quantum mechanics, and black holes, is far too smart for most of us to understand, but this abridgment, with the help of the narrator's positive spin, gives an idea of how such a great scientist, long afflicted with Lou Gehrig's disease, thinks and writes.
