Professor Hawking transformed our view of the universe in his landmark bestselling book A Brief History of Time, and most recently in the bestselling Universe in a Nutshell.

The Theory of Everything presents the most complex theories, both past and present, of physics; yet it remains clear and accessible. It will enlighten readers and expose them to the rich history of scientific thought and the complexities of the universe in which we live....Continua
I occasionally read Stephen Hawking’s book to refresh my knowledge in physics and cosmology. But for this book, I vaguely recalled that the first few chapters have been covered in the author’s other books, such as “Black holes and baby universes and other essays”.
