Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Brief History of Time, published in 1988, was a landmark volume in science writing and in world-wide acclaim and popularity, with more than 9 million copies in print globally. The original edition was on the cutting edge of what was then known about the origins and nature of the universe. But the ensuing years have seen extraordinary advances in the technology of observing both the micro- and the macrocosmic world--observations that have confirmed many of Hawking's theoretical predictions in the first edition of his book.

Now a decade later, this edition updates the chapters throughout to document those advances, and also includes an entirely new chapter on Wormholes and Time Travel and a new introduction. It make vividly clear why A Brief History of Time has transformed our view of the universe.

Synopsis:

Was there a beginning of time?, Could time run backwards? and Is the universe infinite are just some of the questions considered in this book for the non-scientific layman. The author begins by reviewing the great theories of the cosmos from Newton to Einstein and then delves into the secrets which lie at the heart of space and time.

Synopsis:

The long-awaited paperback edition of this, the longest running >Sunday Times< hardback bestseller ever. Since its publication in 1988, >A Brief History of Time< has shot Stephen Hawking to stardom. He has appeared on >Star Trek< and in British Telecom advertisements and has even been a voiceover on the latest >Pink Floyd< album. In the Spring, Channel 4 will be showing a 3-part series called >Reality on the Rocks< which will explore the ideas in Hawking's book and also includes interviews with the man himself.
