About the Author

Stephen Hawking is Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge; his other books for the general reader include the essay collection "Black Hole"s 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 coauthor of the children's book series "The Kids of Einstein Elementary."


True, Hawking here aims to provide a less technically complex version of his famed A Brief History of Time. But he's also updated the content to reflect the very latest research. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
