“The authors bring together an anecdotal clarity that is something of a first for the genre. . . . Making science like this interesting is not all that hard; making it accessible is the real trick, one that The Grand Design pulls off.”—Time

“In this short and sprightly book, Messrs. Hawking and Mlodinow take the reader through a whirlwind tour of fundamental physics and cosmology.”—The Wall Street Journal
“Fascinating . . . a wealth of ideas [that] leave us with a clearer understanding of modern physics in all its invigorating complexity.”—Los Angeles Times
“Groundbreaking.”—The Washington Post

Von Ben
This book has only become well known due to the media hype that has accompanied it. Respected and well known book critics such as Jeffrey Kluger (TIMES magazine) have praised this book for indecipherable reasons.

I decided to read this book in hope that it would bring forth new ideas or put old theories into a new perspective. Yet, I was utterly disillusioned. The work is based on the most basic physics principles and theories known to any individual that has taken Physics at an advanced high school level. The various basic theories and principals are explained at an extremely superficial level for readers that have no knowledge of physics. This may explain the affirmative reviews of some critics. Furthermore, all sophisticated and interesting ideas presented by the book (such as M-theory being the only candidate for a unified theory) are not explained to the necessary depth. Some arguments simply state facts such as: discrete matter cannot be created from nothing yet a whole universe can, argument done. Thus, this book might be interesting to those who have never dealt with physics. However, this is exactly what makes this book so disappointing as it has been presented as a book that encompasses revolutionary ideas developed by the greatest minds of our time. Yet, not a single idea of Stephen Hawkins himself is presented in the entire book. The book is merely a collection of other physicist's ideas. This also results in the book consisting to 50% of science history.

In addition, irrational and bias comments such as the one occurring on the very first page: "philosophy is dead" immediately disqualifies this book from the higher ranks.

2.0 von 5 Sternen It's turtles all the way down! 24. Oktober 2010
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Stephen Hawking's new book 'The Grand Design' makes an interesting read. It is an informative but popular book about contemporary theoretical physics, stimulating, witty and, with its magnificent artwork, aesthetically as well as intellectually pleasing.

Eight chapters take you on a journey starting with the ancient Greeks and ending with M-theory. On the way complicated ideas such as quantum theory, relativity, super-gravity, the anthropic principle (both weak and strong), as well as questions as to the relevance of God for science and why we exist, are clearly discussed. I recommend this book to those who have a basic background in physics but you might also consider reading Brian Greene's 'The Elegant Universe' which covers the same material with equal clarity but more depth. Finally, as could be expected, 'The Grand Design' does not give a better answer to the meaning of life than that already supplied by Monty Python or Douglas Adams.

Is the book without blemish? Unfortunately not. Regrettably the publishers seem to think that anyone reading a book on quantum and space-time physics will be bewildered by the concept of 10 raised to a power and will feel happier if some temperatures are given in Fahrenheit. Furthermore there are two self-inflicted problems, one minor, the other not quite so. Let us start with the minor problem.

The book starts with a flourish. "Philosophy is dead", we are told; "Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery". This initial lack of modesty is backed-up by an occasional outbreak of Aristotle-bashing. According to the authors the old man with the beard "didn't make definite predictions, and when [he] did, the predictions weren't always in agreement with observation.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Metaphysical Physics 12. Juni 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Stephen Hawking, a master of simplicity, gives us an accessible starting point for further in-depth ventures. After announcing the death of philosophy the book takes over and addresses the eternal questions of existence. Where do we come from? Why are we here? Why is there something rather than nothing? I presume the answers won't please everybody but at least the book tries to address these metaphysical questions using the language of our time with an almost entertaining style. It is worth reading Hawking's reasoning why, contrary to creationist dogmatism, our highly complex world does not need a creator God at his origin. However, by mentioning that biology, chemistry and psychology are reducible to physics if only the trillions of equations could be solved the book does not escape from dogmatism itself. So, handle with care!

4.0 von 5 Sternen 42 vs the M-theory 10. Oktober 2011
Von BLehner
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Being one of the most influential physicists of our time Stephen Hawking has contributed a lot to the field of cosmology over the years. In The Grand Design he once again brings the interested reader closer to understanding the universe and how it works.
Why is the universe the way it is? This is just one of the questions which Hawking tackles by shedding light on recent discoveries and theoretical advances in his field. Presenting itself as a concise survey that covers the history behind the modern view of the universe this book is written for those of non-scientific background which, admittedly, some might view as a bit too simplistic. However, it is exactly the kind of book on science, or rather physics, that a girl like me needs. Why? Because apart from being a really fascinating topic, it is highly comprehensibly written, making the quest for a unified theory of the universe accessible to the reader without causing major headaches. And both the subtle humor and the interspersed cartoons are just an added bonus.
Granted, I still can't wrap my mind around those eleven dimensions, but no one's perfect. Let me introduce you to the M-theory which is (at the moment anyway) the only candidate for a complete theory of the universe, or rather for a universe that creates itself. No creator necessary.
In short: To some the answer is 42, to Hawking it's the M-theory!
