This is Stephen Hawking’s book.
I listened to it over Christmas whilst playing a bit of GTA: San Andreas, particularly enjoying a bit of quarry action and, of course, a load of flying.
In Advanced Higher Physics, which I’m studying this year, we’ve talked a lot about the universe, including stars and black holes and all that gubbins. Astronomy really interests me, and this book neatly and simply presented the current state of our ideas of the universe (well, whenever the book was published). I’ll probably need to revisit the book and pay it a bit more attention, but I haven’t seen a better attempt at making the universe appeal to the masses in this way.
