Was there a beginning of time? Could time run backwards? Is the universe infinite or does it have boundaries?
These are just some of the questions considered in an internationally acclaimed masterpiece by one of the world's greatest thinkers.
Following his passing in March 2018, Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time will continue to forever stand as his gift to the world. Few books have carried such a siesmic impact, opening millions of minds to the deep cosmos in language that is both succinct and clear.
It begins by reviewing the great theories of the cosmos from Newton to Einstein, before delving into the secrets which still lie at the heart of space and time, from the Big Bang to black holes, via spiral galaxies and strong theory.
