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.

A clear and concise explication of the cosmological theory of Hawking, with some necessary bits about the history of cosmology and of the philosophy of science. The additional material on disc 4 should be looked at first and followed whilst listening along. Although clear, it must be listened to more carefully than most non-fiction audiobooks due to the lucidity of expression masking the depth of the thought. Its enlivened by jokes about every twenty minutes. The reader is consistently excellent.

As a complete astronomic infant, it was completely accessible and understandable. Very interesting!

I must admit giggling at the prospect of a "more accessible" version of "A Brief History of Time" - but it IS much more friendly that the original book, plus expands upon the original data. Voice actor Erik Davies' take on the material makes for a pleasant experience all the way around. Recommended for astronomy and science buffs!
