    Inhaltsangabe

    Read by Ben Whishaw and Garrick Hagon, with an afterword read by Lucy Hawking.  

    The world-famous cosmologist and number one best-selling author of A Brief History of Time leaves us with his final thoughts on the universe's biggest questions in this brilliant posthumous work.

    How did the universe begin? Will humanity survive on Earth? Is there intelligent life beyond our solar system? Could artificial intelligence ever outsmart us?

    Throughout his extraordinary career, Stephen Hawking expanded our understanding of the universe and unravelled some of its greatest mysteries. But even as his theoretical work on black holes, imaginary time and multiple histories took his mind to the furthest reaches of space, Hawking always believed that science could also be used to fix the problems on our planet.

    And now, as we face potentially catastrophic changes here on Earth - from climate change to dwindling natural resources to the threat of artificial superintelligence - Stephen Hawking turns his attention to the most urgent issues for humankind.

    Wide-ranging, intellectually stimulating, passionately argued and infused with his characteristic humour, Brief Answers to the Big Questions, the final book from one of the greatest minds in history, is a personal view on the challenges we face as a human race and where we, as a planet, are heading next.

    Mind boggling

    Even though intricate nuances of Physics it bit challenging for a commerce graduate I throughly enjoyed this book and many of the big questions discussion. The parts I couldn't grasp does not bother me much as I am way too grateful for the parts that I did understand. Highly recommend this book as worth every penny.

    Unzusammenhängend geschrieben

    Man merkt, dass das Buch nicht wirklich von Stephen Hawking ist, sondern einfach sehr unzusammenhängend von mehreren Personen geschrieben ist. Ständig wiederholen sich Aussagen und Erklärungen, anstatt aufeinander aufzubauen.
    Im Vergleich zu den vergangenen Büchern gibt es aber auch sowieso keine wirklich neuen Aussagen.

    Man hat leider das Gefühl, dass mit dem Medienrummel rund um den Tod von Hawking noch Mal Geld gemacht werden sollte.

    Parting words.

    I imagine this, Stephan Hawking‘s last written piece, to be intentionally his parting words. He says himself that it’s an optimist‘s warning to mankind - watch out or we’ll make ourselves extinct - while giving us a kid‘s eye view of a bright future. For any curious person highly recommend.

    Brilliant, witty and heartfelt

    The book “Brief answers to the big questions” is a brief overview of Mr. Stephen Hawkings’ work, it’s insightful for scientists and interested individuals, and written with an incredible sense of humor.

    He’ll certainly inspire generations to come, and credits the teachers, that he says spark the interest for most breakthrough discoveries.

    His advice in the end of the book is empowering and includes a touching afterword by his daughter.

    What a blessed family. Or rather, what they chose to make of it.

    I definitely recommend this book to read or hear - the audiobook version features his characteristic voice for some of the brief answers he gives to the big questions.

    phänomenal gut, witzig und absolut verständlich

    Ein muss für jeden Science-Fakt Fan ... alles wird absolut gut verständlich erklärt und vorgetragen. Auch die original Kommentare von Prof Dr Hawking finde ich toll ... auch mit dem typisch sarkastisch britischem Humor, gefällt es mir sehr gut ...

    *klick* Noice

    It was really interesting and impressive.
    Although I'm not an native English speaker I understood the most of it and for almost everything else, I was able to understand it in context.

    Incredibly interesting to read

    While the whole book is a lot of fun to read/listen - the last 20min of conclusion and afterword made me realize how great this man was.
