    Description

    The Theory Of Everything (With CD) is compilation of some of Stephen Hawking’s works covering several groundbreaking theories put forth by him.


    Summary Of The Book

    The Theory Of Everything (With CD) is a collection of Stephen Hawking’s works, compiled from seven of his lectures captured on audio. The book was originally released under the title Stephen W. Hawking’s Life Works: The Cambridge Lectures. The book explores several of his theories - brilliant theories that have helped redefine global perceptions of the universe and its contents.


    From Aristotle’s conclusion that the earth is round to Hubble’s discovery that the universe in expanding, the book begins with a history of the various ideas about the universe that have been put forth over the centuries. He then delves into the depths of modern physics, exploring various theories about the origin of the universe, including string theory and the space-time continuum. He also discusses the nature of black holes, the research of which kept him occupied for over a decade.


    The book’s title refers to a theory of physics that defines the unification of the four fundamental forces of nature, namely gravity, the electromagnetic force, the strong force, and the weak force.


    The Theory Of Everything (With CD) was published in 2002 by Jaico Publishers. However, it has neither been authorized nor endorsed by Hawking. This particular edition is a 2008 reprint. It is accompanied by a CD that matches the book content.


    About Stephen Hawking

     

    Stephen Hawking is a famous author and theoretical physicist from England.


    His books include On The Shoulders Of Giants, Black Holes And Baby Universes, The Grand Design, The Universe In A Nutshell Edition: Reprint, and A Brief History Of Time  from the Big Bang to Black Holes. He has collaborated with his daughter Lucy to write books like George And The Big Bang and George’s Secret Key To The Universe.


    His writing primarily falls under the popular science genre, a genre in which science is presented in a format suitable for a general audience.


    Hawking was born on January 8, 1942. He was educated at St. Albans School, Hertfordshire. In 1962, he graduated with a BA from University College, Oxford. In 1966, he earned a doctorate from Trinity Hall, Cambridge, and followed it up with a research fellowship at Cambridge. He then embarked on a three-decade long teaching career at the University of Cambridge as the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics. He has a motor neurone disease, a disorder that has significantly worsened over the years. As of 2012, it has reached a point where his near-total paralysis has forced him to communicate only via a speech-generating device. Hawking has been married two times, with both marriages ending in a divorce. He has two sons and a daughter from his first marriage. Hawking’s contributions to the field of theoretical physics have earned him several honorary degrees and awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

    Word-by-word copy of A Brief History Of Time

    A good thing about this book is that its got a CD so that one can listen to the whole book instead of reading it, if they wish to.

    Apart from that, it's nearly a word-for-word copy of A Brief History Of Time

    Not a Hawking Book

    If you are a Hawking fan, let me warn you... this book is not officially recognized by Stephen Hawking himself (refer Wikipedia). It's just a collection of some of his talks.
    If you were just looking for knowledge, go for it. It's full of information. But once you'll know that it wasn't a genuine Hawking book, you will feel demotivated. Thank you Jaico & flipkart for (illegally) selling it to me.
