very interesting but somewhat lengthy,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Brief History Of Time: From Big Bang To Black Holes: From the Big Bang to Black Holes (Taschenbuch)
I really do like the idea to address such an exciting subject to non mathematicians. The choice of topics is well balanced and gives you an interesting introduction into the modern view of our universe. In particular the introduction of sometimes contradictory models explain how physics works-the evolution of ideas. I personally admire one who admits errors in the course of his scientific career, as Hawking does. However despite the lack of any formula the book is not easy to understand. In contrary some formulas would help--at least the lengthy way of writing numbers (one million million million million million million million - a 1 with 42 zeros) does not increase the readability. I'm still looking for a book presenting formulas but explaining them and pointing out the consequences. Nevertheless I enjoyed reading "a brief history of time" and will now turn to "the universe in a nutshell". For all who have strong interest in topics such as relativity, quantum mechanics and space-time but are not willing to study mathematics this book definitely is an excellent starting point.
