Stephen Hawking is widely regarded as the most important theoretical physicist since Albert Einstein. In this work he presents a succinct history of the most important theories and developments of our universe and then discusses current research and still unanswered questions. A Brief History of Time presents millennia of research about the universe in a compact form and readable style, although the density of ideas continues to be dividing line between those who have read the book and those who own the book. Nevertheless, A Brief History of Time shows one of the great physicists writing to share the wonders of the universe with any intellectually intrepid reader. Fine in Fine dust jacket. (Item #1815)
