Brilliant for a REASON
by WildelyYours on April 1, 2008This book belongs in every home, establishment and bookshelf because it helps US, the public, realise our place in the cosmos.
With a lovely introduction by the wonderful Carl Sagan, this book starts off with discussing the mechanics of gravity, space and the physical universe.
The beginning is not as exhilarating as the remainder of this book, so many people have been discouraged by the content in the beginning, as well as the fact that Stephen Hawking is the modern social and academic equivalent of Albert Einstein.
Through the entirety of the book, you begin to see his ability to burst with passion for these subjects with ardent, well-conceived representations of truly complex ideas.
As Carl Sagan explained the universe itself, he explains how it works in vivid, exciting detail.
If you do not prefer text and simplistic drawings, I suggest the Illustrated edition, yet even better for those desiring less technical content and more accessible information, I highly advise you purchase the
BRIEFER HISTORY OF TIME.
This book has a kinder flow of words and thoughts as well as pictures placed on a more durable, acid free paper.
Regardless of the edition that you (hopefully) purchase, I hope you thoroughly enjoy its wondrous implications for the world and how these physicists can help to answer the burning questions of how, what, where, when, and why...
