Such a great mind

When I started reading this book, I thought there is no way in the world I will be able to understand one of the greatest minds in physics today. How wrong I was! Dr. Hawking makes complicated theory understandable for the rest of us. This is a fascinating book that I w...
When I started reading this book, I thought there is no way in the world I will be able to understand one of the greatest minds in physics today. How wrong I was! Dr. Hawking makes complicated theory understandable for the rest of us. This is a fascinating book that I would recommend to everyone.

    TOO 'BRIEF' IN CONTENT

    As a professor in astrophysics I obviously find the field of science and all it holds to be very interesting; however I found this particular book to be amateur in content. This book seems to be geared toward the laymen. Anyone in search of a well written book on the recent advancements of astrophysics and the theoretical physics of time travel should seek other reference material.

    Arrogant

    Ignorance may be bliss. I will look to other source for informaion in the future. Not only is his arrogance overwhelming but his conclusions seem rash or missing crucial information. This book is not so much educational as a "Im so awesome". I will never be picking up another of this guys books. My pity for his situation is overrode by his lack of character.
