Editorial Reviews

Review

"Science Books & Films," June 2008
"Hawking's book is stimulating and provides the reader with motivation for studying physics and engaging the universe."

About the Author

Stephen Hawking was one of the most highly celebrated and recognized scientists who has ever lived. He first came to mainstream prominence with the publication of A Brief History of Time, and followed with a second triumph, The Universe in a Nutshell, and most recently, The Grand Design. The media has called Hawking "the most intelligent man in the world today" and "the scientific heir to Einstein, Newton, and Galileo." He lived in Cambridge, England.
Always the perfect gift
