This is an auction for A BRIEFER HISTORY OF TIME: THE SCIENCE CLASSIC MADE MORE ACCESSIBLE, by Stephen Hawking, with Leonard Mlodinow.

Amazon.com review:

"Stephen Hawking's bestseller, A Brief History of Time, is a landmark in scientific writing. Its author's engaging voice is one reason, and the compelling subjects he addresses is another: the nature of space and time, the role of God in creation, the history and future of the universe. But the years since its publication, readers have repeatedly told Professor Hawking of their difficulty in understanding some of the book's most important concepts. This is the origin of A BRIEFER HISTORY OF TIME: its authors wish to make its content accessible to readers - as well as to bring it up-to-date with the latest scientific observations and findings. This book expands on the great subjects of the original. Purely technical concepts, such as the mathematics of chaotic boundary conditions, are gone. Conversely, subjects of wide interest that were difficult to follow because they were interspersed throughout the book have now been given chapters of their own, including relativity, curved space, and quantum theory. This reorganization has allowed the authors to expand areas of special interest and recent progress, from the latest developments in string theory to developments in the search for a unified theory of all the forces of physics. Thirty-eight full-colour illustrations enhance the text and make A BRIEFER HISTORY OF TIM an exhilarating addition to the literature of science."
