Reviews

"[Hawking] can explain the complexities of cosmological physics with an engaging combination of clarity and wit. . . . His is a brain of extraordinary power."--The New York Review of Books

"This book marries a child's wonder to a genius's intellect. We journey into Hawking's universe while marvelling at his mind."--The Sunday Times (London)

"Masterful."--The Wall Street Journal

"Charming and lucid . . . [A book of] sunny brilliance."--The New Yorker

"Lively and provocative . . . Mr. Hawking clearly possesses a natural teacher's gifts--easy, good-natured humor and an ability to illustrate highly complex propositions with analogies plucked from daily life."--The New York Times

"Even as he sits helpless in his wheelchair, his mind seems to soar ever more brilliantly across the vastness of space and time to unlock the secrets of the universe."--Time
