In physicist Stephen Hawking's brilliant opus, A Brief History of Time, he presented us with a bold new look at our universe, how it began, and how our old views of physics and tired theories about the creation of the universe were no longer relevant. In other words, Hawking gave us a new look at our world, our universe, and ourselves.

Now, Hawking presents an even more comprehensive look at our universe, its creation, and how we see ourselves within it. Imagine sitting in a comfortable room listening to Hawking discuss his latest theories and place them in historical context with science's other great achievements--it would be like hearing Christopher Columbus deliver the news about the new world.

Hawking presents a series of seven lectures in which he describes, more clearly than ever, the history of the universe as we know it. He begins with the history of ideas about the universe, from Aristotle's idea that the Earth is round to Hubble's discovery two millennium later that our universe is growing.

Using this history as a launching pad, Hawking takes us on a fascinating journey through the telescopic lens of modern physics to gain a new glimpse of the universe--the nature of black holes, the space-time continuum, and new information about the origin of the universe. He uses this scientific basis to come up with a unified theory of everything that the author claims will be the ultimate triumph of human reason. Download and start listening now!

    " Nonostante la sintesi semplificata di alcuni argomenti non mi e' sembrato di facile lettura. Comunque interessante per una visione molto generica. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Saroj | 2/17/2014

    " good book..but i had already read 'the brief history of time' so i didn't find anything new in this book.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trey Nowell | 2/9/2014

    " Loved the ideas in this, broke it down well for us less-intelligent folk :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Cunnelly | 2/8/2014

    " Very easy to understand and a fantastic insight into the mechanics of the universe. My only qualm is the repeated reference of God.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rez Mez | 2/4/2014

    " Good read. More like a shorter and easier version of Brief History of Time. Enjoyed it! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yvonne Riggs | 1/23/2014

    " I will definitely have to re-read this, even though he explained things in layman's terms, I am looking forward to giving it a second go. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bagus | 1/21/2014

    " buku yang sangat bagus, menarik sekali untuk di baca..orang pintar pasti pilih buku ini :p "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolinebeck | 1/20/2014

    " Interesting, too thought provoking for me at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 1/16/2014

    " Interesting, but not nearly as compelling (or helpful) for me as Hawking's A Brief History of Time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorileinart | 1/14/2014

    " This is the book that pulled me into the study of quantum mechanics. Very understandable, especially after the second read. Hawkings is a master, THE master. Read and be amazed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 12/22/2013

    " I found this surprisingly easy to read, and it was very interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin Barker | 11/16/2013

    " I am reading this on my Kindle, so the 'I'm on page' thang seems redundant! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Enrique Del Castillo | 11/11/2013

    " Thats what the world need! Science! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Millionaire Hoy | 11/8/2013

    " Loved this book, but it was a bit hard to follow based on my limited understanding of the concepts presented. "A Short History of Nearly Everything" by Bill Bryson is better suited for the neophyte and had I not read Bryson's book, I might have been completely lost. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Esmp | 5/15/2012

    " It is said this book wasn't written nor edited by Stephen Hawking. Nevertheless, I liked it. It was a nice reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bookwyrm13 | 3/1/2012

    " All those years as a devoted sci fi fan, instructors always told me it was drivel that would rot my brain, but it lay the foundation for me to actually grasp the concepts described herein.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jose A. Fuentes | 10/20/2011

    " Not bad at all, is a nice little view of the all mighty universe in it's infinite of the all & the nothing. I really enjoyed this second read and got actually quite excited about all this black hole thingy xD "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ryan | 10/8/2011

    " i always love astrophysics. "

    " No estoy muy familiarizado con la teoría de la relatividad, y algunas otras cuestiones de física, aún así creo que alguien que tenga los conocimientos podría disfrutar bastante el libro. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frances | 4/18/2011

    " I found this to be a review of his book A Brief History Of Time which I have read twice and will most likely read again. Some day I will understand more of this. It is an interesting topic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruno | 3/7/2011

    " Very accessible (for a Stephen Hawking book) on the current status on the investigation of the universe's origin "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anand | 3/1/2011

    " This book speaks about the universe birth, black hole and about various theorams put up. Nice book for any nature loving person or person who loves science. This book widens knowledge on various universal elements and giving rise to possible chances earth would end up with. It was a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jose A. | 2/6/2011
