Fun, in a nutshell and in time!

I bought this one because I had lost my other copies. I think, that all people should read this book of books; because, learning is fundamental to thinking and thinking is fundamental to enjoying life. I love life, just like I love being able to breathe, so learning is fundamental to understanding God's creation and pumpkin pie! Pumpkin pie, makes life worthy of all we do; got to love pumpkin pie!

Strong Physics Concepts

Stephen Hawking does not produce light reading. If you are interested in pure, scientific principles, this book provides 2 books worth of reading for one low price.

Very good books

Very nice books plus affordable price. I like them very much. Thanks a lot


I had meant to get the full version but ended up with the "nutshell" version instead. As someone who has a degree in physics this book represents nothing new to me, but presents the findings of modern cosmology in a logical, accessible way that I am sure everyone can benefit from. The book is aimed at the lay person (there are no fancy equations) who may not know what scientists currently have found about the universe.

The Best book on cosmology.

If you're only going to get one book on the astro world, want to find out if the field is interesting enough to persue further or want to learn what seems like quite a lot of knowledge, this is the book to get. Improved over previous versions. Excellent pictures. Expensive looking. Amateur appeal; pro content. I'm not formally educated in this subject at all, so I can attest to it's accuracy, but having read other books by Greene, Tyson, etc, I'd say this book through the use of explanations in words and pictures, is able to explain a pretty good chunk of what might be going on in the "outer" world. Personally... i think it's all about spinning magnets.

Amazing - Easy to read

The illustration are amazing !!!!. It really help you to understand better the concepts, I have read very few books with such ilustrations. At the same time, Stephen Hawking explains the concept in a very simple way that any non-scientific person can understand. I fully recommend this book. Regards
