    " Watered down and redundant rehash of the stuff covered much more entertainingly and more thoroughly by Hawkings himself in "A Brief History of Time" - don't waste your time with this one - read Hawkings' book... "

    " Stole from Cory Hulburt. :-) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rob Waiser | 12/15/2012

    " A decent quick introduction to many of the concepts developed/studied by Hawking through the early '80s. Hawking's own books provide much more depth. "

    " Loved this book! I checked it out from our local public library, which doesn't always have the most modern options. But even a nearly 30-year-old biography of Hawking was fascinating. It definitely makes me want to read more by and about him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 6/17/2012

    " This is a great, if a bit dated, explanation of theoretical physics. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzanne | 4/26/2012

    " An essential read. No answers to the God question, but The Anthropic Principle and the Big Bang arguments are quite compelling! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glen | 12/15/2011

    " Covers the basics of theoretical physics, such as the Big Bang , Big Crunch, black holes, bubble theory, and early history of the universe. Interesting stuff. Most of the book is written in layman language with the exception of the last chapter, which was a speech that Hawking gave at Cambridge. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellee | 10/27/2011

    " A good overview of Hawking's early work, but a lot's happened in cosmological physics since the book was published. It'd be a good warm-up for A Brief History of Time. "
