This landmark book is for those of us who prefer words to equations; this is the story of the ultimate quest for knowledge, the ongoing search for the secrets at the heart of time and space. Its author, Stephen W. Hawking, is arguably the greatest mind since Einstein. From the vantage point of the wheelchair, where he has spent the last 20 years trapped by Lou Gehrig's disease, Professor Hawking has transformed our view of the universe. A Brief History of Time is Hawking's classic introduction to today's most important scientific ideas about the cosmos. It is read here by the Emmy Award-winning host of The Michael Jackson Show on KABC-TV.

    " I have to admit, there was much of this book-- a dumbed down/ popular overview of theoretical physics-- that I simply could not wrap my mind around, but it is well organized and certainly spurred my imagination. "

    " It's really a moving story specially picturing the Universe around us... "

    " This book took a lot of work to read. Don't get me wrong -- I love science. I am a scientist and I understand what Hawking is trying to explain but (and this is a big but) sometimes the book read smoothly and other times, well, other times were uneven. That is its fatal flaw -- the unevenness. If you look past that, it is a decent read. Overall, I am a nerd at heart so it worked for me and I learned a lot. "

    " Forget about the physics they taught you in college, a great book "
