Overrated - Nevertheless, worth reading,

Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Brief History of Time (Taschenbuch)
When I first picked up this book, I expected much more. Hawking uses simple language to explain extremely complicated theories (relativity, uncertainty principle, quantum mechanics, GUTs) and I applaud the absense of mathematical equations (except one, E=mc^2). However, in my opinion, Hawking's explanations on some key cosmological points are sometimes too concise, whereas on the other hand too much time is spent on other topics such as particle theory. This book did not captivate me as much as it should have, despite reading it twice.
