"Stephen Hawking’s film ideas from his book the same title and border on his life. A Brief History of Time attempts to explain a number of subjects in cosmology, including the Big Bang, black holes, light cones and superstring theory, the reader. Its main objective is to provide an overview of the subject but, unusual for a science book, but also tries to explain some complex mathematics.

The author notes that an editor warned him that for every equation in the book readers are halved, so it only includes a single equation: E = mc ². In addition to the withdrawal of Hawking’s equations, the book also simplifies things by illustrations in the text, which shows complex models and diagrams. The book is considered by many as an “unread bestseller”, a book many people have only a few have ended.

I really like the idea of tackling a subject as fascinating for non-mathematicians. The choice of topics is well balanced and provides an interesting introduction to the modern view of our universe. In particular, the introduction of sometimes contradictory models explain how the physics of the evolution of ideas"
