The Illustrated Brief History of Time, Updated and Expanded Edition Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Illustrated Brief History of Time, Updated and Expanded Edition

Ever wonder what a black hole in space is, or what the "Big Bang" is? How about a singularity, or a wormhole in space? Stephen Hawking explains all of this and more in "The Illustrated Brief History of Time." Hawking, a brilliant astronomer and mathematician, has a second brilliance: the ability to explain very complicated concepts in everyday, easily-understood English. His book is also on cassette tape. The diction, read by someone with a beautiful British accent, is so crisp and clear that I thought it was an audio adaption of the original written text. Not so! The written text is the same.

If you are curious about theories of how the universe started and what it might truly be, but were afraid to become lost in a highly technical book, read Hawking's book. You will understand more than you dreamed possible. Best of all, when you are with your friends, and the conversation shifts from politics, sports, and latest fashions to a more lofty subject, you won't be lost.
