Inhaltsangabe

Was there a beginning of time? Could time run backwards? Is the universe infinite, or does it have boundaries? These are just some of the questions considered in an internationally acclaimed masterpiece by one of the world's greatest thinkers.

It begins by reviewing the great theories of the cosmos, from Newton to Einstein, before delving into the secrets which still lie at the heart of space and time, from the big bang to black holes, via spiral galaxies and strong theory.

To this day A Brief History of Time remains a staple of the scientific canon, and its succinct and clear language continues to introduce millions to the universe and its wonders.

Sehr spannende Einführung in unser Universum

Sehr spannende Einführung in unser Universum. Stephen Hawking verstand es, hochkomplexe Zusammenhänge mitreißend aufzubereiten. Auch ohne Vorwissen in Astronomie und Physik hörbar.

Skittles

Listened to the audio book and went through every chapter twice. Still I kind of got the Skittles rainbow effect, super interesting and fascinating at first but then it soon just gets too much even though I'm not exactly new to the genre. 

I liked it anyway. Hawking had an amazing mind and was able to bring complicated matters down to Earth.

Will definitely give this book another go in a few years time. Oh and also I can't believe this book is already as old as me.

Exciting, yet not trivial

The title is well read. The content, though, is far from trivial and some details which Hawking refers to several times would be necessary to keep in mind or one would have to look them up repeatedly. This is easier when seen visually.
All in all an exciting and fascinating explanation of current scientific cosmology.

You'd wish the history was longer

In a spectacular way, the author takes you in a journey through time (and space for that matter), that you'd wish would last for much longer than the short few hours the book lasts for.
The topics are very complicated, but the presentation makes the rapidly increasing complexity seem effortless and smooth. I do admit not having understood all of what was presented, but I do not believe the author's aim was to make me a specialist. His aim was to familiarise me with with the big issues for me to go out and do my own research. Not than he did not explain them well, but simply because a short history of time would not be so short if the explaining was too detailed.
All in all a wonderful book than I would recommend to any one with interest in the universe he/she lives in.

easy to understand

throughout all 3 years of highschool I hadn't understood as much about astrophysics! it's so simple and describes so much. I didn't want it to end, I want to know more
