Your name. Close Send. Remember me Forgot password? Stephen Hawking manages to make difficult concepts easier for the common person to understand through his explanations, and he uses metaphors that make understanding easier.
He explores how theories have developed over time starting all the way back from Aristotle , how some have been discarded after being disproved and others evolving to what we understand as our modern day view of the universe.
He also explores how certain inconsistencies or problems may arise with these theories, and then offers plausible explanations and solutions not all of the theories have been completely proven yet. Besides making these difficult subjects easier to understand, he also manages to insert humour throughout his writing, so it's entertaining and not dry. The title, A Brief History of Time, doesn't even really give the book enough credit, as Hawking covers so many different concepts in such a short novel.
Definitely worth reading for anyone interested in the universe. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by MattWeeb from Must read The book is very interesting and the concepts are understandable for an average person Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Emma from lots to learn A very interesting and thoughtful read, with lots to think about.
This book is being read in the movie of the Prisoner of Azkaban by a man in the Leaky Cauldron. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Robert from One of the foremost books of our time I'm not sure why this book is not in every high school's science classes' curriculum. If the movie on Hawking's life gets you excited about Hawking's book, then its purpose has been fulfilled.
If this book gets you excited about science or reading, Hawking really has brought physics to the masses. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave from great knowledge He tried to explain the complex ideas in simple ways, but some places are still hard to understand Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Anika from Must read once in yo life fam Sometimes difficult to understand but one of the best books I ever read. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by David from Not only an excellent science book; but an incredible book in its own right.
Although it can be quite complicated at times, this book is extraordinary and allows us "normal people" a peek into the world of physics, mathematics and quantum mechanics. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Amanda from Not for everyone Dr.
Hawking explains some difficult concepts in an accessible fashion, but this is still a very theoretical book and some wouldn't enjoy it.

I'm not sure 2-stars is a fair rating for this book. Hawking does a great job at explaining some pretty complex concepts in this book while throwing in a few jokes here and there. But for me, this kind of science is just too far on the theoretical side for me.
While I would say half of this book was quite over my head in terms of quantam mechanics, the bits I learned was impressive. This book was put together probably as simple as advanced mathematics, quantam mechanics, physics, science and the universe can be put in to lament's terms.
I think as I read it over, and perhaps more of his books I will continue to learn and expand my understanding of the world I live in. I am grateful that Mr. Hawkings has even taken the time to write to the 'normal' folks and masses what the brilliant minds of this world have discovered.
It makes me strive to understand and learn more about who we are, where we came from and where we are heading as a civilization and as a universe.
This book is famous like its author. Its wonder lies in the fact that the forefront of physics is portrayed in laymen's terms. Thus the theories behind quantum mechanics, relativity, black holes, time travel, and wormholes can all be comprehended by the average person. Every time I pick up this paperback, I feel humbled by the grandeur of our mysterious universe.
Needless to say, the origin of the universe may just provide a clue to the birth of life. Of all the theories described in the book, I was most intrigued by Einstein's special theory of relativity. Before the dawn of the 20th Century, the Michelson-Morley experiment was conducted to substantiate the existence of a substance called "ether.
Throughout the next twenty years, numerous futile attempts were made to explain the surprising results of the experiment.
