Stephen Hawking

Brief Answers to the Big Questions

Summary: 
This is Stephen Hawking's final gift to us, a book in which he answers some of the big questions facing this world. Will humanity survive? Should we colonize space? Does God exist? ​​Hawking addresses these and other issues in this wide-ranging, passionately argued book. Anyone who reads this book will draw their own conclusions, but the message I came away with, was that he is optimistic over the fate of the human race, with science playing an integral part. A thoroughly thought-provoking book, that has to be read more than once to appreciate the thoughts of one of the most brilliant minds seen in history.

A Briefer History of Time

Summary: 
This is Professor Hawking’s response for readers who have asked for a more accessible formulation of its key concepts—the nature of space and time, the role of God in creation, and the history and future of the universe. If this is a simpler version, of his first book, then I am awestruck by this man's intellect and ability to put such concepts into print. His ability to describe his ideas and concepts in terms that the non-science person might grasp is amazing. I have science degrees and had to reread several sections, to even begin to grasp his ideas. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will probably read this book again, if only to maybe understand a little more. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has any curiosity for even a glimpse of an understanding of our incredible universe.
