Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Hawking, the renowned Cambridge mathematician, teams up with Mlodinow, a physicist at Caltech, for a brief introduction to 'the grand design' of the universe. If this project seems ambitious for a four and a half — hour audio production, it is; however, even general readers will be able to follow along as the authors guide us through M-theories, quantum mechanics, general and special relativity, and other mind-blowing cosmological discoveries of the last century. The goal of all these journeys through the history of science is to answer some basic questions: why is there a universe in the first place? What other universes may in fact be possible, given Richard Feynman's theory of multiple histories? The audio version of this book is simple and scaled down. Despite an engaging and capable performance by West End stage actor Steve West, some listeners might long for more content — diagrams or video tracks to accompany and augment the lecture. A Bantam hardcover. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
