A Brief History of Time- A Review

Humanity’s deepest desire for knowledge is justification enough for our continuing quest. And your goal is nothing less than a complete description of the universe we live in.”

In this book, Stephen W. Hawking laid down his years of groundbreaking research in theoretical physics into the form of a book. He aims to “explain how far we had come in our understanding of the universe, ” and man-kind might be close to finding a unifies theory of the cosmos.

It’s not technical writing but like a story about the universe and its curators. 

The most astonishing fact about that, it holds its place on the New York Times bestseller list for 147 weeks and 247 weeks on the Times London bestseller list. 

The Hawking clearly broke down the complex in theoretical physics, along with his deft use of humor and analogy, won over many readers who might have otherwise found themselves intimidated by such material.

Hawking himself and along with others have long joked that many people purchase his book because it made them look smart but never bothered to read it.  “Brief History of Time” was probably that least read, most-bought book ever, ” Leonard Mlodinow, a physicist at the California Institute of Technology, told NPR.


It begins from the Big Bang theory and goes to the concept of Black holes. This book is a journey to introduce yourself to the biggest questions of your existence. Once you see the book, it gives you the illusion of being tough to read.  Once you start over, you drool over the imaginative world inside the book. I must say, this book has in its very own simplistic tone. The most complex issues were defined or explained in a flick.

This book not only targets the intellectuals but those who are seekers of their existence or wants to know about the UNIVERSE.

If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason for then we know the mind of God.”
