The Illustrated Brief History of Time [9780593077184]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

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

This is Stephen Hawking's updated, expanded and illustrated edition of his celebrated work which includes the most recent developments in the field, many of which were forecast by him. At the same time, he explains his complex theories through a fresh visual dimension. Over one hundred and fifty stunning colour illustrations have been specially commissioned for this purpose to help the reader understand what have become popular mythic images of our century, but which nonetheless remain difficult, abstract ideas to grasp. It includes a new introduction written specially for this edition.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME:

'His mind seems to soar ever more brilliantly across the vastness of space and time to unlock the secrets of the universe.' - Time Magazine

'One of the most brilliant scientific minds since Einstein.' - Daily Express

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

'This book is a tour de force [and] a triumph for its author.' - The Scotsman

'Genius unique, tragic and triumphant . . . Hawking takes us through the evolution of modern thinking on cosmology, from Aristotle and Copernicus, through Galileo and Newton, to Einstein and, indeed, Hawking himself.' - Sydney Morning Herald
