Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHORS

The science classic made more accessible
• More concise • Illustrated

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 years readers 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.

    Has some interesting parts. Nice and short, thought it would be more scientific I guess. Too many instances of talking in circles. Good overall review of what theories and ideas we've had and have today. If you watch enough science/history channel and have gone on some YouTube binges watching basic physics videos then you've heard this all before.

    This book is more up to date than the brief history of time. It may be very confusing but, once you read it second time it will make more sence. I would highly recomend this to space lovers and people who like to learn about scientific laws.
