A Brief History of the Universe
on 2 January 2012
I've recently developed an interest in astrophysics having read a lot of philosophy and I want to know more about the philosophy of religion.Therefore it makes sense that I should at least try to understand scientific explanations for how the universe was created and how it works.I read a few Stephen Hawking books , but found them quite heavy going, so I was pleased to pick up this book in a discount bookstore as it seemed more accessible.Having now read it I am pleased to say that it is indeed accessible and does its best to explain some quite difficult concepts in fairly easy to digest bite sized chunks of information. To fully understand it requires a broader knowledge of astrophysics but hopefully , having read it, I now have a wider general knowledge about the subject ,can follow the debates on the subject more easily and will be able to revisit the Hawking books and make more sense of them.
