This book showed me the light!, 28 Nov. 2010
Mathematics and the distances in the univers appear abstract to most of us,at least to me.I have read many books about the topics,but this book,thanks to brilliant illustrations and Hawkings way of making complicated connections "easy" to understand,made me "see" the black holes and the space/time line.His use of comparing everyday phenomenons we all have experienced with the topic he is explaining make it possibel to understand for a layman.The scale is a bit bigger though! And there is a lot of good humor and understatements.Read it!
