From one of the most brilliant minds of our time comes a book that clarifies his most important ideas. Stephen Hawking`s worldwide bestseller A Brief History of Time remains a landmark volume in scientific writing. But for years readers have asked for a more accessible formulation of its key concepts – the nature of space and time, the role of God in creation, and the history and future of the universe. A Briefer History of Time is Professor Hawking`s response. Although "briefer," this book is much more than a mere explanation of Hawking`s earlier work. A Briefer History of Time both clarifies and expands on the great subjects of the original, and records the latest developments in the field – from string theory to the search for a unified theory of all the forces of physics. Thirty-seven full-color illustrations enhance the text and make A Briefer History of Time an exhilarating and must-have addition in its own right to the great literature of science and ideas.
