Mr B’s Christmas Catalogue Review 2018

An enlightening read, in true Hawking fashion, asking some of the big questions we like to ponder and providing concise and easy to understand answers. How did it all begin? Is time travel possible? What is inside a black hole? This book is the ideal gift for the avid physicist or arm-chair astronomer. A fitting finale to the career of one of our most crucial and awe-inspiring thinkers.

Description

The final book from Professor Stephen Hawking, the bestselling author of A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME and arguably the most famous scientist of our age, BRIEF ANSWERS TO THE BIG QUESTIONS is a profound, accessible and timely reflection on the biggest questions in science.
