Product description

Review

This app/book version of Hawking's famous laymen book is just an amazing piece of learning. This makes much more accessible and understandable the complex and awesome topics dealt by Hawking as he explains how our universe works. I am just in awe at how creative he is to produce one of a kind e-book like this. The pace, illustrations and connections of topics within the book are so helpful and so appropriate for the new generation used to tweets and small bites of information. You can flip over some topics when you have some time, learn some amazing fact, and come back later which no rush or worry about how fast you are progressing through the book. Hope other books on complex topics are translated to this format. And I love the updates of the latest science since the publication of the original book. We have learned so much in the last decade that I agree with Hawking, it is an honour to live in this times., Ribozyme

Master of the Universe... One scientist's courageous voyage to the frontiers of the Cosmos, Newsweek

This book marries a child's wonder to a genius's intellect. We journey into Hawking's universe, while marvelling at his mind, The Sunday Times

He can explain the complexities of cosmological physics with an engaging combination of clarity and wit... His is a brain of extraordinary power, Observer

To follow such a fine mind as it exposes such great problems is an exciting experience, The Sunday Times
