EDITORIAL REVIEW: From One of the Most Brilliant Minds of Our TimeComes a Book that Clarifies His Most Important Ideas****Stephen Hawking’s worldwide bestseller, **A Brief History of Time***,* remains one of the landmark volumes in scientific writing of our time. But for years readers have asked for a more accessible formulation of its key concepts—the nature of space and time, the role of God in creation, and the history and future of the universe. Professor Hawking’s response is this new work that will guide nonscientists everywhere in the ongoing search for the tantalizing secrets at the heart of time and space.… ****Although “briefer,” this book is much more than a mere explanation of Hawking’s earlier work. **A Briefer History of Time** both clarifies and expands on the great subjects of the original, and records the latest developments in the field—from string theory to the search for a unified theory of all the forces of physics. Thirty-seven full-color illustrations enhance the text and make** A Briefer History of Time** an exhilarating and must-have addition in its own right to the great literature of science and ideas.**
