Genres:

  • Devin

    Good for a quick and brief summary of a few concepts of physics but nothing deep or insightful for those already experienced in the world of physics.

  • BrendanV

    I think this is a great supplemental read to Hawking's first two books. I have read his other two books multiple times and thought that this collection of essays deepened my overall understanding of the subject matter. As Hawking's audio books go, I prefer Simon Prebble over this reader.

    I got this book because if was written by Steve Hawkings but I was wrong. There are several others and the material too boring to listen to.

    Although it was well written, and very interesting, parts were a little over my head.

    As a guide to your average person I think this book fails to reach its audience. The book seems to fluctuate between levels of narrative. Sometimes being at the level of a scientist, where I got bogged down in a lot of terminology, and sometimes at the level of a 5th grade history teacher, reciting events and dates without much insight. I found a lot of the same information covered in a much better way in Bill Bryson's "Short History of Nearly Everything"
