Summary

Explore the secrets of the universe with selections from the works of three of the greatest scientific minds of our lifetime. Widely regarded as the most brilliant theoretical physicist since Einstein, Stephen W. Hawking has delved into today's most important scientific ideas about the cosmos, expanded upon the rich history of scientific thought, and reveled in the complexities of the universe in which we live.

John Boslough's Stephen W. Hawking's Universe provides an introduction to the mysterious world of black holes and singularities. Timothy Ferris takes an imaginative look at the great challenge of how to understand, interpret, and reconcile the realms of mind and universe, and James Gleick, in Chaos, records the birth of a new science, and a new way of understanding the growth of complexity in nature.
