Almost unbelievable how so many complicated ideas were transformed into an accessible book, easy to read,
This review is from: The Grand Design (Paperback)
'The Grand Design' by Stephen W. Hawking is the new book is a brilliant scientist, a sort of sequel to his most famous book "A Brief History of Time" with which this wonderful writer and physicist due to his knowledge once again pleasantly surprised.
In this book that he made together with Leonard Mlodinow, Hawking has gone one step further than the issues being discussed in his previous works and grapple with some fundamental and ultimate questions of human origin.
Inside, Hawking asks the questions "Why is there something rather than nothing?", "Why are the laws of nature so finely tuned to allow the existence of a people?", "Is there a master plan of some supreme being who created us or is there a scientific explanation?"
And then he provides the answers to those questions.
"The Grand Design" is a kind of handbook on quantum physics and metaphysics for complete dummies, and in a great way Hawking speaks about the question of God's existence, especially because lately some have started labeling him as religious, along with some other well-known scientists.
So, it's amazing how these two authors managed to create a work with so many complicated ideas and transform them into an accessible book that is extremely easy to read.
Therefore, the 'The Grand Design' is a book that can be recommended to Hawking fans, physicists and other people who love science, but also to all those who want to hear new discoveries about centuries old existing human beliefs.
Although its volume doesn't suggest it, this is a great and informative book that must be read.
