  • 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

    Bad print!

    Bad quality cover, bad quality paper, worst quality unreadable print! All these factors cannot be ignored in lieu of excellent quality content. This book is just a cheap photocopy of the original. Shame on Flipkart for selling such low quality product and troubling loyal customers! I wanted to rate it 0, only that that option is not available here! I've filed return of my book, and I guess this is my last book order.
