Stephen Hawking's worldwide bestseller, "A Brief History of Time", has been a landmark publication in scientific books. "A Briefer History of Time" expands on the great subjects of the original. Purely technical concepts, such as the mathematics of chaotic boundary conditions, are gone. Conversely, subjects of wide interest have now been given entire chapters of their own, including relativity, curved space, and quantum theory. CD Rom of full-colour illustrations make "A Briefer History of Time" an exhilarating addition in its own right to the literature of science.
STEPHEN HAWKING is Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge; his other books for the general reader include the essay collection Black Holes and Baby Universes and The Universe in a Nutshell. Physicist LEONARD MLODINOW, his collaborator for this new edition, has taught at Cal Tech, written for Star Trek: The Next Generation, and is the author of Euclid's Window and Feynman's Rainbow and the co-author of the children's book series The Kids of Einstein Elementary.
