Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

“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
Format:Taschenbuch
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.

"The Grand Design" by Stephen W. Hawking is the new book is a brilliant scientist, a sort of sequel to his most famous book "A Brief History of Time" with which this wonderful writer and physicist due to his knowledge once again pleasantly surprised.

In this book that he made together with Leonard Mlodinow, Hawking has gone one step further than the issues being discussed in his previous works and grapple with some fundamental and ultimate questions of human origin.

Inside, Hawking asks the questions "Why is there something rather than nothing?", "Why are the laws of nature so finely tuned to allow the existence of a people?", "Is there a master plan of some supreme being who created us or is there a scientific explanation?"
And then he provides the answers to those questions.

"The Grand Design" is a kind of handbook on quantum physics and metaphysics for complete dummies, and in a great way Hawking speaks about the question of God's existence, especially because lately some have started labeling him as religious, along with some other well-known scientists.
So, it's amazing how these two authors managed to create a work with so many complicated ideas and transform them into an accessible book that is extremely easy to read.

Therefore, the "The Grand Design" is a book that can be recommended to Hawking fans, physicists and other people who love science, but also to all those who want to hear new discoveries about centuries old existing human beliefs.

Although its volume doesn't suggest it, this is a great and informative book that must be read.
