Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists in history, wrote the modern classic A Brief History of Time to help nonscientists understand the questions being asked by scientists today: Where did the universe come from? How and why did it begin? Will it come to an end, and if so, how? Hawking attempts to reveal these questions (and where we're looking for answers) using a minimum of technical jargon. Among the topics gracefully covered are gravity, black holes, the Big Bang, the nature of time, and physicists' search for a grand unifying theory. This is deep science; these concepts are so vast (or so tiny) as to cause vertigo while reading, and one can't help but marvel at Hawking's ability to synthesize this difficult subject for people not used to thinking about things like alternate dimensions. The journey is certainly worth taking, for, as Hawking says, the reward of understanding the universe may be a glimpse of "the mind of God." --Therese Littleton -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

Pressestimmen

“[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

Von Ein Kunde am 3. Februar 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
Most people know that Hawking is a brilliant physicist, but after reading this book, one develops a respect for his other talents as well. Most noticeable is Stephen Hawking's ability to make very complicated ideas seem quite clear through good explanations, clear comparisons to real life events, and a soft humor. The organization of chapers mostly follows a chronological order, which gives a sense of history from Aristotle to present day, yet also establishes concepts in an order that builds on itself. One also realizes that A Brief History of Time was written by a writer, not a scientist who happened to put ideas to paper. This makes a big difference in the enjoyment of a book, since good information in a dry, dull form can be difficult to read (remember trying to keep your eyes open while reading a dull textbook in a subject of interest?). On the other hand, interesting information presented in an interesting manner make A Brief History of Time as much of a 'page-turner' as physics can be.
In summary, a fountain of information from galaxies and black holes to quantum mechanics presented in such a way that is not only as easy to understand as it can be, but is an enjoyable experience to read.

A most interesting book. Hawking envites the reader to look in the universe in its most deepst way: though physics. Though the book is not specially easy to read, Hawking managed to describe the most important achievements of modern physics in a very short and compact book. For anyone that is inerested in physics a must have ! His brilliant mind makes complex topics from physics such as quantum mechanics and relativity quite understandable. All without a single mathematical formula ! He discusses every topic only in its physical meaning rather than through mathematics. Also for people interested in philosophy, a reference for understanding how modern science "sees" the universive in its very essence, from the beginning to its end. If you want some answers for such questions like: what is time ? What is Space ? When was beginning ? Is time travel possible ?
What is the fate of the universe ? This is the book for you.

Es gelingt Stephen Hawking in diesem Buch aktuelle Themen der Teilchenphysik und Astronomie mit einfachen Beispielen und viel Humor zu veranschaulichen. Gegenüber der ersten Ausgabe enthält diese viele Illustrationen, die es dem Leser erleichtern das Erklärte zu verstehen und zu visualisieren.
Alle wesentlichen Erkenntnisse der modernen Physik werden beleuchtet. Dabei wird sowohl auf Einsteins Relativitätatheorie, schwarze Löcher, als auch auf die Möglichkeit von Zeitreisen eingegangen. Trotz der Komplexität dieser Themen gelingt es Hawking alles sehr wissenschaftlich, aber denoch verständlich zu beschreiben. Diese Gradwanderung ist es, die dieses Buch wohl so einmalig macht und zu einem der meist gelesensten Bücher unserer Zeit.
Ich kann dieses Buch jedem wärmstens empfehlen, der sich für Physik und Astronomie interessiert oder sich schon immer gefragt hat, wie unser kleiner Planet wohl entstanden sein könnte (im Gegensatz zur Bibel).

I believe it was just Stephen Hawking's name that made me buy this book. His reputation somehow ensures the quality up front. Further than just explaining the origin of the universe it provides an interesting relation between astronomy, relativity and quantum mechanics, i.e. between the enormously big and the very smallest in physics. It is Hawking's goal to explain physics to everyman and he succeeds to a high degree. There are, in fact, matter which is complex and difficult to understand if you are not in that science. On the other hand, in my opinion there are things, which he over explains, making it too popular. However, this does not influence the overall quality and I highly recommend this book.

Hawking is no master of the written word. Early on, he warns us not to consult his earlier books for more detail - because they are "quite unreadable". He also admits that, during the production of this book, his editor bombarded him with comments and questions. The impact of this editorial input is plain. The book wallows from unnecessarily long complex sentences written in the passive sense to snappy anecdotes from Hawking's life.
I found the early chapters very useful as overviews of the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. The middle chapters - on black holes and the origin of the Universe - were clearly written with enthusiasm.
However, that enthusiasm seemed to fade towards the end of the book. The chapter on the arrows of time seems to have been lifted from an old speech. Here's what I'm about to tell you: this is what I'm saying: this is what I've just told you.
Also, the explanation of the cosmological arrow of time left a lot of questions hanging. Question: What will happen when the Universe starts to contract - will people start to experience time running backwards? Answer: Intelligent life could not exist because, by then, all the stars will have burned out. Well, OK - but does that answer whether time is in reverse or not?
Chapter 10 introduces string theory. Clearly this is an incredibly complicated subject and not capable of being explained in a book entitled "Brief History". However, the way the subject is introduced and then dropped is tantalising. Apparently, string theories are only consistent if space-time has either ten or twenty-six dimensions. All these extra dimensions are curled up into space of a very small size. I, for one, would have liked more explanation of what that means.
