"This app/book version of Hawking's famous laymen book is just an amazing piece of learning. This makes much more accessible and understandable the complex and awesome topics dealt by Hawking as he explains how our universe works. I am just in awe at how creative he is to produce one of a kind e-book like this. The pace, illustrations and connections of topics within the book are so helpful and so appropriate for the new generation used to tweets and small bites of information. You can flip over some topics when you have some time, learn some amazing fact, and come back later which no rush or worry about how fast you are progressing through the book. Hope other books on complex topics are translated to this format. And I love the updates of the latest science since the publication of the original book. We have learned so much in the last decade that I agree with Hawking, it is an honour to live in this times." (Ribozyme)
"'Master of the Universe...One scientist's courageous voyage to the frontiers of the Cosmos'" (Newsweek)
"'This book marries a child's wonder to a genius's intellect. We journey into Hawking's universe, while marvelling at his mind'" (The Sunday Times)
"'He can explain the complexities of cosmological physics with an engaging combination of clarity and wit...His is a brain of extraordinary power'" (Observer)
"'To follow such a fine mind as it exposes such great problems is an exciting experience'" (The Sunday Times)
About the Author
In 1963, Stephen Hawking contracted motor neurone disease and was given two years to live. Yet he went on to Cambridge to become a brilliant researcher and Professorial Fellow at Gonville and Caius College. For thirty years he held the post of Lucasian Professor of Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at Cambridge, the chair held by Isaac Newton in 1663. Professor Hawking has over a dozen honorary degrees, was awarded the CBE in 1982. He is a fellow of the Royal Society and a Member of the US National Academy of Science.

Stephen Hawking takes us on a journey from the time when the world believed that Earth was the center of the universe and supported on the back of a giant tortoise to our age when we know better. Without the use of any mathematical equation, except the one famous mass energy equivalence relation by Einstein, he has explained the nature of our universe, from the smallest particles which cannot be seen to the biggest entities, the black holes in a simple language.
The manner in which Hawking broke down complex concepts in theoretical physics, along with his adept use of humor, he clearly won over the readers who otherwise might have found themselves intimidated by physics and maths.
I recommend it to all people who are interested in physics and cosmology but hate equations. 😄
The Grate Stephen Hawkings is the write which makes the book more legendary.
Grate to read the language is not much difficult to understand .
Nearly All my Dough of the space science has been cleared by this book.
I mean it explains the high level concepts in a way that anyone can easily understand ..
You can easily understand the complexity of high level concepts in Easiest way..
If you're a at least +1 student and a physics lover ...This one is for you..
And it adds more interest If you are interested in astrophysics ...This book is a MUST...
And the hardest thing about the book is that you can't put it down...once you start reading it...it makes you understand and inspires you to think,which I find very amazing
If you have wondered about the big bang, black holes, elementary particles, general relativity, quantum mechanics, space and time, or the laws of the universe, this book is for you!
This book reminds one of how beautiful, fascinating and intriguing our universe is! I don't think the author could have simplified things any further. I rate the book a 5-star for keeping me engaged, for making me explore concepts I wouldn't have otherwise, and for reminding me of the wonders of the universe.
