Clearly written, mind-blowing stuff,
This review is from: A Brief History Of Time: From Big Bang To Black Holes (Paperback)
Hawking manages to be impressively clear about what must be one of the most confusing and complicated areas of science. How do you explain a universe where time could go backwards, where gravity is a by-product and space runs into a dozen dimensions?
Amazingly, this is all covered in around 200 pages. At times thought-provoking, at others simply mind-blowing, this is certainly a book that will stimulate and force you to question some of the things we assume about our world, the universe, and the forces in it, as well as the beginnings and end of time. Hopefully I'm now prepared to answer those difficult questions that children ask...
