#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
 
Published more than two decades ago to great critical acclaim and commercial success, A Brief History of Time has become a landmark volume in science writing. Stephen Hawking, one of the great minds of our time, explores such profound questions as: How did the universe begin—and what made its start possible? Does time always flow forward? Is the universe unending—or are there boundaries? Are there other dimensions in space? What will happen when it all ends?
 
Told in language we all can understand, A Brief History of Time plunges into the exotic realms of black holes and quarks, of antimatter and “arrows of time,” of the big bang and a bigger God—where the possibilities are wondrous and unexpected. With exciting images and profound imagination, Stephen Hawking brings us closer to the ultimate secrets at the very heart of creation.

Review:

Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists in history, wrote the modern classic A Brief History of Time to help nonscientists understand the questions being asked by scientists today: Where did the universe come from? How and why did it begin? Will it come to an end, and if so, how? Hawking attempts to reveal these questions (and where we're looking for answers) using a minimum of technical jargon. Among the topics gracefully covered are gravity, black holes, the Big Bang, the nature of time, and physicists' search for a grand unifying theory. This is deep science; these concepts are so vast (or so tiny) as to cause vertigo while reading, and one can't help but marvel at Hawking's ability to synthesize this difficult subject for people not used to thinking about things like alternate dimensions. The journey is certainly worth taking, for, as Hawking says, the reward of understanding the universe may be a glimpse of "the mind of God." --Therese Littleton

From the Inside Flap:

"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.

Descrizione libro Bantam Books/Prakash Book Depot., 2001. Softcover. Condizione libro: New. Stephen Hawking?s A Brief History of Time takes its readers on a historical odyssey, presenting the various theories developed by different cultures over many millennia to explain the origin of the Universe. Hawking goes on to explain the actual physics of the Universe. The first half of the book explains complex concepts like quantum physics, the fabric of space-time, particle physics, gravity and Einstein?s Theory of Relativity. In the book, Hawking explains how Einstein changed the way we view the universe by introducing time as the fourth dimension to the traditional three dimensional setting of the universe. Next, the subject of Quantum Mechanics, which deals with matter at the atomic and subatomic levels, is explored. In the second half of the book, Stephen Hawking deals with the subjects that are connected to his own research areas like Black Holes and Hawking Radiation. The books starts off by presenting an interesting story about an elderly woman who challenges the views presented by an astrophysicist and claims that the earth is flat and is supported on the back of a tortoise. This sets a reader friendly tone that?s followed throughout the course of the book! After he was warned by an editor that for each equation in his book, his readership would decrease by almost 50 percent, Hawking relented and kept the equations to a minimum of one ? just E=mc2. A Brief History Of Time From The Big Bang To Black Holes has become a bestseller in its category. The first edition was brought out in 1988 by Bantam Dell Publishing Group. Since then, the book has sold over 10 million copies. It stayed on the bestseller list of The Sunday Times for over four years. Printed Pages: 210. Codice libro della libreria 77723
