Description

Was there a beginning of time? Could time run backwards? Is the universe infinite, or does it have boundaries? These are just some of the questions considered in an internationally acclaimed masterpiece by one of the world's greatest thinkers.

It begins by reviewing the great theories of the cosmos, from Newton to Einstein, before delving into the secrets which still lie at the heart of space and time, from the big bang to black holes, via spiral galaxies and strong theory.

To this day A Brief History of Time remains a staple of the scientific canon, and its succinct and clear language continues to introduce millions to the universe and its wonders.

Great intro to Physics

Great intro to theory of relativity, quantum mechanics and how they fit in an hypothetical unified theory. this is a layman exposition, not difficult at all to get through.

livre très intéressant mais très intense

ce livre est très intéressant mais il faut un bagage intellectuel et mathématiques suffisant pour pouvoir le comprendre

Good depth on black holes and universe

Better narator and recording than other versions of this book.
Learned new stuff about black holes and time travelling.
A lot of times I found myself rewinding back so I can understnd the concepts, so its not an esy book if you want to understand it, even naively explained.

Probably something that is better read

Fantastic book, by a brilliant physicist. No surprises here, it is as good as people say and the only drawback is that some things are easier understood if read (and re-read).

A great popular introduction into modern physics

This book is interesting not only because of the theoretical physics knowledge body, but also because it ia a great guide into the scientific method.

Skittles

Listened to the audio book and went through every chapter twice. Still I kind of got the Skittles rainbow effect, super interesting and fascinating at first but then it soon just gets too much even though I'm not exactly new to the genre. 

I liked it anyway. Hawking had an amazing mind and was able to bring complicated matters down to Earth.

Will definitely give this book another go in a few years time. Oh and also I can't believe this book is already as old as me.

Sehr spannende Einführung in unser Universum

Sehr spannende Einführung in unser Universum. Stephen Hawking verstand es, hochkomplexe Zusammenhänge mitreißend aufzubereiten. Auch ohne Vorwissen in Astronomie und Physik hörbar.

An Impression of the Universe

A wonderful Insight into physics, even though I personally have no knowledge of physics at all. I listened right through and was thrilled by learning about gravity, time, atoms, particles, dimensions, velocity, boundaries, infinity, explanation models of the universe in past, present and future. Overwhelming, inspiring and full of knowledge I wouldn't have dared to try reading hadn't I been so impressed by the author .

Overall an interesting read!

It was interesting to learn about how much we have discovered about the universe and our ongoing quest for the ultimate understanding of the origin and the laws of universe. Some parts of the book were a bit difficult for me to understand since i am not a physicist, but mostly it was nicely explained that a person with high-school physics knowledge can follow.

Must read for all interested in science

This book is complementing the pieces of knowledge we non scientists might have acquired over the time. A bit outdated it still reflects our situation quite well. Without Stephen Hawking our search for truth might take a bit longer - but - considering one million million million million ... years of time that passed we will be able to wait a bit longer for the lasts questions to remain unanswered. Thank you Mr. Hawking for this wonderful book.

Exciting, yet not trivial

The title is well read. The content, though, is far from trivial and some details which Hawking refers to several times would be necessary to keep in mind or one would have to look them up repeatedly. This is easier when seen visually.
All in all an exciting and fascinating explanation of current scientific cosmology.

You'd wish the history was longer

In a spectacular way, the author takes you in a journey through time (and space for that matter), that you'd wish would last for much longer than the short few hours the book lasts for.
The topics are very complicated, but the presentation makes the rapidly increasing complexity seem effortless and smooth. I do admit not having understood all of what was presented, but I do not believe the author's aim was to make me a specialist. His aim was to familiarise me with with the big issues for me to go out and do my own research. Not than he did not explain them well, but simply because a short history of time would not be so short if the explaining was too detailed.
All in all a wonderful book than I would recommend to any one with interest in the universe he/she lives in.

easy to understand

throughout all 3 years of highschool I hadn't understood as much about astrophysics! it's so simple and describes so much. I didn't want it to end, I want to know more
