    Description

    When and how did the universe begin? Why are we here? What is the nature of reality? Is the apparent 'grand design' of our universe evidence for a benevolent creator who set things in motion? Or does science offer another explanation? In The Grand Design, the most recent scientific thinking about the mysteries of the universe is presented, in language marked by both brilliance and simplicity.

    The Grand Design explains the latest thoughts about model-dependent realism (the idea that there is no one version of reality), and about the multiverse concept of reality in which there are many universes. There are new ideas about the top-down theory of cosmology (the idea that there is no one history of the universe, but that every possible history exists).It concludes with a riveting assessment of m-theory, and discusses whether it is the unified theory Einstein spent a lifetime searching for.

    This is the first major work in nearly a decade by one of the world's greatest thinkers. A succinct, startling and lavishly illustrated guide to discoveries that are altering our understanding and threatening some of our most cherished belief systems, The Grand Design is a book that will inform - and provoke - like no other.

    worth a read

    I recently have purchased this book and gave a full detailed reading. This book is a good read for those who doesn't have much idea on astrophysics (Im a microbiologist), but have some taste for it. Though the book doesn't feature in depth of things for a brush up its great. Worth a read

    Gazed, Amazed and Confuesd

    It is not that Science is stupid and it is not that Humans are either. It is just that the way the book projects on it content - it takes you to the whole new level and bring back to your current leaving you in state of confusion OR it is like a time machine and you board on it and go past and go further and you have to return to you true existence OR like waking up from the dream and wondering what just happened

    Theoretical Indication and Practical implications are very different, one it sa...
