Product Description

Review
------

“[Hawking] 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 of Books

“This book marries a child’s wonder to a genius’s intellect. We journey into Hawking’s universe while marvelling at his
mind.”—The Sunday Times (London)

“Masterful.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Charming and lucid . . . [A book of] sunny brilliance.”—The New Yorker

“Lively and provocative . . . Mr. Hawking clearly possesses a natural teacher’s gifts—easy, good-natured humor and an
ability to illustrate highly complex propositions with analogies plucked from daily life.”—The New York Times

“Even as he sits helpless in his wheelchair, his mind seems to soar ever more brilliantly across the vastness of space
and time to unlock the secrets of the universe.”—Time

From the Inside Flap
--------------------

"A Brief History of Time, published in 1988, was a landmark volume in science writing and in world-wide
acclaim and popularity, with more than 9 million copies in print globally. The original edition was on the cutting edge

advances in the technology of observing both the micro- and the macrocosmic world--observations that have confirmed many
of Hawking's theoretical predictions in the first edition of his book.
Now a decade later, this edition updates the chapters throughout to document those advances, and also includes an
entirely new chapter on Wormholes and Time Travel and a new introduction. It make vividly clear why "A Brief History of
Time has transformed our view of the universe.
