This book is amazing! If you like science but can't understand all the math, this is one for you! The illustations are so unusual and can be contemplated over for hours. This book has special meaning for me because my 11 year old autistic son read and immediately explained it to me (in his words) after I had spent half the night trying to understand its concepts. I finally knew there was a person in there.
About This Item
Eager to bring to his original text the new knowledge revealed by these many observations, as well as his recent research, for this expanded edition Professor Hawking has prepared a new introduction to the book, written an entirely new chapter on the fascinating subject of wormholes and time travel, and updated the original chapters.
In addition, to heighten understanding of complex concepts that readers may have found difficult to grasp despite the clarity and wit of Professor Hawking's writing, this edition is enhanced throughout with more than 240 full-color illustrations, including satellite images, photographs made made possible by spectacular technological advance such as the Hubble Space Telescope, and computer generated images of three and four-dimensional realities. Detailed captions clarify these illustrations, enable readers to experience the vastness of intergalactic space, the nature of black holes, and the microcosmic world of particle physics in which matters and antimatter collide.
A classic work that now brings to the reader the latest understanding of cosmology, A Brief History Of Time is the story of the ongoing search for t he tantalizing secrets at the heart of time and space.

A Beautiful Book
Got this for grandson who wants to study Astro Physics in college. It is a beautiful book and a tribute to a remarkable person. Hawking raised many questions and explored the unknown. He does not push his atheist belief and he failed to prove their is no God.
The Illustrated a Brief History of Time
Prompt delivery, fare price, and beautiful book quality. Cant wait to starting reading and enjoy!!
A very excellent read ...
A very excellent read for anyone interesting in physics or space. Easy to read, to the point, well-illustrated. Great as reference material. You'll definately feel smarter after reading this.
The science gets a lit...
The science gets a little deep in places, so this book might not been for the feint of heart, but nevertheless a great read if you're interested in physics and the nature of time. The illustrated edition is liberally illustrated with many beautiful diagrams and illustrations, which for the most part don't aid in understanding the material, but definitely increase one's overall enjoyment of the book. Well worth the extra cost.
