FROM ONE OF THE MOST BRILLIANT MINDS OF OUR TIME COMES A BOOK THAT CLARIFIES HIS MOST IMPORTANT IDEAS
Stephen Hawking’s worldwide bestseller A Brief History of Time remains a landmark volume in scientific writing. But for readers who have asked for a more accessible formulation of its key concepts—the nature of space and time, the role of God in creation, and the history and future of the universe—A Briefer History of Time is Professor Hawking’s response.
Although “briefer,” this book is much more than a mere explanation of Hawking’s earlier work. A Briefer History of Time both clarifies and expands on the great subjects of the original, and records the latest developments in the field—from string theory to the search for a unified theory of all the forces of physics. Thirty-seven full-color illustrations enhance the text and make A Briefer History of Time an exhilarating and must-have addition in its own right to the great literature of science and ideas.

Stephen Hawking, who was born on the anniversary of Galileo’s death in 1942, held Isaac Newton’s chair as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge for thirty years. Widely regarded as the most brilliant theoretical physicist since Einstein, he is also the author of A Brief History of Time, Black Holes and Baby Universes, The Universe in a Nutshell, The Grand Design, and numerous scientific books and papers.

Stimulating and enjoyable readThis book is a revised and updated version of the author's earlier book-A Brief History of Time.

A Briefer History of TimeA really excellent book, I could complete reading in one go, recommended for all science loving people. Many of the facts, particularly on going to the past and future (time travel) are bordering on the thoughts of oriental philosophy. The Chapter on the The Forces of Nature and Unification of Physics seems a bit difficult to understand/ comprehend.

Brilliant...Absolutley Brilliant.... There's more to this book than what meets the eye. Must ReadStephen W. Hawking is very likely the most famous physicist in the world. This is partially as a result of the public's amazement that a man who is so severely disabled by motor neuron disease (Hawking has lost almost all ability to move his extremities and can only "speak" through the aid of an specially designed electronic device), can be such a brilliant scientist. But part of Hawking's fame is in his wiliness to present to the general public his fascinating views on Cosmology.

A Brief History of TimeThis book gives a view on the origin of the universe, its future, and the way it could have developed to its current state. All this hypothesis was given using physics. It also tries to illustrate the part of physics whose aim is to devise a unified theory that describes everything in the universe.

Comparing with "A Brief History of Time"It is certainly a fun read, and manages to achieve a very lofty goal -- making liberal arts grads understand both the desirability and potential implications of reconciling general relativity and quantum physics. Overall, it tried to walk too fine a tightrope between discussing complex subjects and at the same time attempting to be as conversational and accessible as possible. Some of these concepts are very very difficult to the uninitiated, so the cursory treatment the authors sometimes give them, in their attempt to make the book accessible and to live up to the "briefER" in the title, actu… (Expand)

Good Book!I've already had read the original title 'A brief History of Time', Really to say, I can't understand much of it. But it's improved edition, 'The Briefer History of time' made me understand this valuable concept deeply.

Excellent Book!!Very lucid and excellent read for newbees like me. It covers a lot of ground in explaining about universe and various theories which try to explain how it works. It also gives an excellent view of history of how various theories evolved and the mistakes made by some scientist even explaining why those mistakes were made and the very possibility that what we are thinking as an inteligent theory today can become obsolete? This book has come long way from "The Brief History of Time" that was published around a decade ago.

A more layman's book to modern physics. Not bad.The cover page kind of summarizes this book - Science classic made more accessible.
