Stephen Hawking has a way of expressing the impossible in terms most everyone can easily understand. If physics of the universe from micro to macro is of interest to you, and you are not a trained physicist, then read Stephen's book. You will love both him and it.

Packed with information. I got lost a few times and had to refer back to previous chapters, but really this is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to know more about Einstein's Theory of Relativity, Quantum Mechanics and Black Holes and I got all of that and lots more. Well worth reading.
Publishers Weekly, 1988-02-19 Hawking's discovery that black holes emit particles caused great excitement among astronomers. In this succinct overview of current theories of the cosmos, the Cambridge University physicist modestly weaves in his own notable contributions while giving due credit to his colleagues. He explains why relativity implies that a ``big bang'' occurred and examines string theory, which posits a universe of 10 or 26 dimensions. His understanding of time's flow leads him to conclude that intelligent beings can only exist during the expansion phase of our increasingly chaotic universe. New research on black holes and subatomic particles holds implications for scientists who, like Hawking, are attempting to devise a unified theory linking Einstein to quantum mechanics. The merit of this book is Hawking's ability to make these ideas graspable by the lay reader. (April)
