Read A Brief History of Time when it first came out and really really couldn't put that down. Found this good, but it did seem to loose its way a little towards the end and then the ending was a little abrupt. Guess I'll just have to get another book to pick where it left off....

Obviously Hawking is a premier physicist but, although he declares 'philosophy to be dead' in the early part of the book, he cannot but help try to philosophize as well as rehearsing yet again some basic physics. Each time I see the 2 slit experiment repeated over and again in books on popular science covering such basic high school physics, I question the author's motive and use of ink. I found the book tedious and chapters with titles such as 'What is Reality' uninspiring. Of course, his reasoning leads into M theory which, although maybe 'true' based upon Hawking's understanding of truth, could also be akin to discovering fairies living in the garden or the perceptual life of his favored goldfish looking at the world through different refractive spectacles.

Who's Afraid of Stephen Hawking?
This is one of the best and clearest accounts of quantum theory and its relation to the large scale world that I have ever come across. If you have an interest in science and the nature of reality, this will answer most of your questions - and there are no equations! But when it comes to his views on the ultimate origin of the Universe, I do not find his arguments convincing. It may be that we have to accept that there are certain questions to which we can never have answers, and the postulate of God as First Cause remains unanswered.
