Publisher's Summary

Seeking to uncover the holy grail of science, the elusive Theory of Everything that lies at the heart of the cosmos, Professor Stephen Hawking takes us to the cutting edge of theoretical physics. In a realm where truth is often stranger than fiction, he explains in layman's terms the principles that control our universe.

Hawking is one of the most influential thinkers of our time, an intellectual icon, known not only for the adventurousness of his ideas but for the clarity with which he expresses them. This is essential listening for all those who want to understand the universe in which we live.

More difficult to follow than A Brief History of Time

This book seems to assume a good grasp of physics and quite frequently the opportunity to simplify the 'text' is passed up in favour of using the correct vocab rather than terms that are more readily understood by non-scientists. That said, I suspect 2nd and 3rd 'readings' would help with understanding the concepts.

Super!

Amazingly insightful, full of facts and ideas that will blow your mind.
Although the concepts may be advanced, the description and explanation are put simply enough for everybody to understand.

Accessible but some less interesting bits

Sometimes easy to let your mind wander but on the whole very interesting and accessible even for someone who isn't a scientist

More reachable by us general folk than history of

More of an ideas book than a simple mathematical book for poor mathematicians this book covers a purely verbal overview of Hawkins ideas at around the end of the last centenary. It is therefore more accessible to non-physic researchers than the history of time

Very good book questionable choice of narrator

The book itself was very interesting, but the narrator has some very odd pronunciations. In particular 'accurately' seems to be a struggle.

Also missing graphs and diagrams but that is to be expected with an audiobook.

Read below

If you're into cosmology and theoretical physics then this book is for you. In my opinion this book gives an in-depth knowledge of these topics, which can be to difficult for someone with very nasic understanding of the universe. In my opinion, "Brief answers to the big questions" has everything this book has to offer, as l9ng as you're not looking for deep insight into cosmology and theoretical physics.
