About the Book

Stephen Hawking is widely believed to be one of the world's greatest minds : a brilliant theoretical physicist whose work helped to reconfigure models of the universe and to redefine what's in it. Imagine sitting in a room listening to Hawking discuss these achievements and place them in historical context. It would be like hearing Christopher Columbus on the New World.

Hawking presents a series of seven lectures-covering everything from big bang to black holes to string theory - that capture not only the brilliance of Hawking's mind but his characteristic wit as well. Of his research on black holes, which absorbed him for more than a decade, he says, “It might seem a bit like looking for a black cat in a coal cellar.”

Hawking begins with a History of ideas about the universe, from Aristotle's determination that the Harth is round to Hubble's discovery, over 2000 years later, that the universe is expanding. Using that as a launching pad, he explores the reaches of modern physics, including theories on the origin of the universe (e.g., the big bang), the nature of black holes, and space-time. Finally, he poses the questions left unanswered by modern physics, especially How To combine all the partial theories into a "unified theory of everything." "If we find The Answer to that," he claims, "it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason."

A great popularizer of Science as well as a brilliant scientist, Hawking believes that advances in theoretical science should be "understandable in broad principle by everyone, not just A Few scientists." In this book, he offers a fascinating voyage of discovery about the Cosmos and our place in it. It is a Book for anyone who has ever gazed at the night sky and wondered what was up there and how it came to be.
