5.0 out of 5 stars Theory of Everything, 20 Sep 2011
This review is from: Illustrated Theory of Everything: The Origin and Fate of the Universe (Hardcover)
Published in 2002, this is the illustrated version of the previous edition; it was a series of seven lectures, the titles of which constitue the chapter headings:

Ideas About the Universe
The Expanding Universe
Black Holes
Black Holes ain't so Black
Origin and Fate of the Universe
The Direction of Time
The Theory of Everything

In his usual lucid, succinct style, he explores and explains aspects of many of the most challenging areas of physics. He has always had the ability to render the complex into words accessible to the "normal" man.

"So long as the universe had a beginning that was a singularity, one could suppose that it was created by an outside agency. But if the universe is really completely self-contained, having no boundary or edge, it would be neither created nor destroyed. It would simply be. What place, then, for a creator?" (P 126)

One may not agree with all his ideas, but he is certainly thought-provoking going where few men have gone before and he is unafraid "to boldly go".
