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.
