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".
The whole theories behind space and time are laid out on the pages with added help of illustrations where necessary. Starting the book in layman's terms, the chapters progress to become more and more advanced and before you know it, you completely understand the basics behind the history of our universe.
If facts are what you're into, then this is a must!
