Briefer History of Time, A

by Stephen HawkingLeonard Mlodinow

In the years since the publication of [the author's] A Brief History of Time, readers have repeatedly told [him] of their great difficulty in understanding some of the book's most important concepts. This is the origin of and reason for [this book]: [his] wish to make its content more accessible to readers - as well as to bring it up-to-date with the latest scientific observations and findings ... 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. This reorganization has allowed the authors to expand areas of special interest and recent progress, from the latest developments in string theory to exciting developments in the search for a complete unified theory of all the forces of physics.-Dust jacket.
