    Description

    In physicist Stephen Hawking's brilliant opus, A Brief History of Time, he presented us with a bold new look at our universe, how it began, and how our old views of physics and tired theories about the creation of the universe were no longer relevant. In other words, Hawking gave us a new look at our world, our universe, and ourselves.

    Now, Hawking presents an even more comprehensive look at our universe, its creation, and how we see ourselves within it. Imagine sitting in a comfortable room listening to Hawking discuss his latest theories and place them in historical context with science's other great achievements--it would be like hearing Christopher Columbus deliver the news about the new world.

    Hawking presents a series of seven lectures in which he describes, more clearly than ever, the history of the universe as we know it. He begins with the history of ideas about the universe, from Aristotle's idea that the Earth is round to Hubble's discovery two millennium later that our universe is growing.

    Using this history as a launching pad, Hawking takes us on a fascinating journey through the telescopic lens of modern physics to gain a new glimpse of the universe--the nature of black holes, the space-time continuum, and new information about the origin of the universe. He uses this scientific basis to come up with a "unified theory of everything" that the author claims will be "the ultimate triumph of human reason."

    Stephen Hawking - what more is there to say?

    Any additional comments?

    Being a studying theoretical physicist, I can respect Hawking's views greatly. In here, he does his best to summarize the Universe, and does so with flying colors, and in vivid detail. I would certainly recommend this audiobook to anyone who wants to discover the Universe and how it came to be. Hawking does so beautifully.

    Shares a lot of text with a Brief History of Time.

    While listening to this I kept thinking I had accidentally restarted A Brief History of Time. They share quite a lot of identical material.

    Abridged version of "Brief History of Time

    Good content, but directly out of his other books. Not much original content. Two of the chapters are direct copies of Brief History!!!

    Excellent book and narration, though out of date

    This book was an excellent collection of lectures at the time it was written, but major new discoveries since then have changed the state of knowledge. Of specific importance, it was not known at that time that the universe's expansion is actually accelerating. This discovery of this unknown expansionary force (labelled "Dark Energy") has changed much of the cosmological landscape Hawking discusses in this book.

    It is still interesting as an historical viewpoint, but could be improved by having some recognition that it is out of date in the description or added as an afterword.

    The reading is truly excellent. A very lively and textured narration that really brings to life Hawking's personality.

    I bought the same book twice.

    This is an edited, dumbed down, and more boring version of "A Brief History of Time". Pass on this one.

    Me, Me, Me & More Me

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Reads like "A Theory of Narcissism." No wonder Steven Hawking is twice divorced...

    Were the concepts of this book easy to follow, or were they too technical?

    Good Technical Information

    What about Michael York’s performance did you like?

    Nice Narration

    enjoyed some of it

    overall, interesting info and told in a simple understandable way.
    too much time spent on topic of black holes (imo), and I didn't particularly like how the book ended...

    Understanding the mind of god

    As no surprise, the works of hawking are a baffling ride of pure knowledge and understanding, that place physics and the fundamental knowledge of the universe in a digestible medium. A fantastic book that will leave you craving for more and inspire you to keep looking toward the skies, as well as the palm of you hand, seeking out every individual atom as a completely different universe.
