About This Item

A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes by Stephen Hawking

A Brief History of Time, published in 1988, was a landmark volume in science writing and in world-wide acclaim and popularity, with more than 9 million copies in print globally. The original edition was on the cutting edge of what was then known about the origins and nature of the universe. But the ensuing years have seen extraordinary advances in the technology of observing both the micro- and the macrocosmic world—observations that have confirmed many of Hawking's theoretical predictions in the first edition of his book.

Now a decade later, this edition updates the chapters throughout to document those advances, and also includes an entirely new chapter on Wormholes and Time Travel and a new introduction. It make vividly clear why A Brief History of Time has transformed our view of the universe.

Synopsis

A Brief History of Time is a popular science book written by Stephen Hawking and first published by the Bantam Dell Publishing Group in 1988. It became a best-seller and has sold more than 9 million copies. It was also on the London Sunday Times best-seller list for more than four years. There is also a documentary by the same name, directed by Errol Morris and released in 1991. Unlike the book, the documentary is primarily a biography of Stephen Hawking.

As a grade 11 student who is greatly interested in Physics, I loved this book. Dr. Hawking managed to explain our universe in great and accurate detail, but in forms and words simple enough for a student to understand. This book was very thorough when explaining everything about our universe, from the forces that control it, to the particles that occupy it, and the cause for all of it. He also presented an unique perspective that compels me to further my knowledge in these areas. I am very glad I chose this book for my physics project and for any future projects I will absolutely choose another book by Dr. Hawking.
