Stephen Hawking Quest for a theory of everything

This is the story of one of the most remarkable figures of the late twentieth century - Professor Stephen Hawking, the Cambridge genius who has earned an international reputation as the most brilliant theoretical physicist since Einstein. His book, A Brief History of Time, has sold 8 million copies worldwide and familiarized a whole generation with complex but intensely exciting scientific theories.


It is not a biography per se. It is rather the story of one man's quest to find the 'Theory of Everything'.


Stephen Hawking A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME

For two decades Stephen Hawking has been responsible for ideas which have transformed the way we view our universe. With A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME he fulfils along - held ambition and opens his insights to a wider audience, offering the non-scientific layman an opportunity to participate in perhaps the greatest intellectual adventure of our age.


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 a clear and accessible book which begins by reviewing the theories of the cosmos from Newton to Einstein, before delving into the secrets which still lie at the heart of space and time.


Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists in history, wrote the modern classic A Brief History of Time to help nonscientists understand the questions being asked by scientists today: Where did the universe come from? How and why did it begin? Will it come to an end, and if so, how? Hawking attempts to reveal these questions (and where we're looking for answers) using a minimum of technical jargon. Among the topics gracefully covered are gravity, black holes, the Big Bang, the nature of time, and physicists' search for a grand unifying theory. This is deep science; these concepts are so vast (or so tiny) as to cause vertigo --Therese Littleton 1989
