“The authors bring together an anecdotal clarity that is something of a first for the genre. . . . Making science like this interesting is not all that hard; making it accessible is the real trick, one that The Grand Design pulls off.”—Time
“In this short and sprightly book, Messrs. Hawking and Mlodinow take the reader through a whirlwind tour of fundamental physics and cosmology.”—The Wall Street Journal
“Fascinating . . . a wealth of ideas [that] leave us with a clearer understanding of modern physics in all its invigorating complexity.”—Los Angeles Times
“Groundbreaking.”—The Washington Post

Having some background in astronomy, I found the more up to date ideas of cosmology very enlightening.
Definitely worth a read.
This book was an easier read than Hawkin's previous publications, and even comes with some humour. From quarks to infinity he reviews human discoveries leading to where we are... Read morePublished 21 months ago by wonndatt
