The most important thing is to learn some things and enjoy the reading. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I can see why it was a best seller worldwide because Stephen was a very entertaining and humorous writer. His explanations of concepts in Astrophysics that I had found inexplicable were a lot clearer by the time I finished reading "A Brief History of Time. The man who was Stephen Hawking genuinely surprised me. I'm seventy-three and rarely get surprised by much anymore.

But in Stephen Hawking the writer I found a kindred spirit and a remarkable human being. Having finally made his acquaintance through his writing, I felt that I had been touched by genius.

Kaui Top Contributor: Historical Fiction Books. I read this book with my oldest son 13 almost 14 years old and enjoyed it even more than when I first read it in the 90s. Stephen Hawking is a brilliant writer. His knowledge of his field theoretical physics is vast, deep, and emotional.

His ability to distill complex ideas into accessable analogies rivals Richard Rhodes who brilliantly describes Mad Cow Disease in Deadly Feasts and the atom bomb in Atomic Bomb , whom I consider to be the best in class for this ability.

I had no appreciation for Dr. Hawkings' skill when I first read this book - probably because I skimmed it. Talk about rewarding! My experience with reading this book with my son has been so positive that we are looking forward to reading the Feynman Lectures together, this time with my husband, this fall.

Who knows, I might become an accidental physicist. Hawking's book is the most understandable description of the physics of time and matter that I've encountered. Not a text book on physics - it's an explanation of classical relativity and quantum mechanics for laymen that focuses on the origin and future of the universe.

It describes what scientists have discovered so far and how their thinking has changed over time, and then discusses the possible futures that seem to be implied. Relativity and quantum mechanics are not easy subjects, but this book is as good as it gets for those who want to learn a bit about them without becoming an expert. If you want to know how the world and the universe works then this book is certainly the one to read. From Quantum Mechanics, providing key sight into extremely small particles and matter that makes up the universe, to relativity general and special which describes how space and time works is what this book is all about.

What I liked most was Hawking's writing style where he inserts both humour where required he opens with the Turtle challenge by a member of the audience as well as plain and easy language to explain concepts about complex topics. Whilst the detail went a little over my head it was nice to go through and pick out areas that made sense. Then again I was able to read a GetAbstract summary on this book and get more out of it.

It really depends on what you want to learn and how much. Three key takeaways from the book: An expanding universe does not preclude a creator, but it does place limits on when he might have carried out his job!

That drove him to test everything out and compete against it. Common people and church officials mostly believed that everything should not be questioned, but Galileo broke that rule and tried to find an answer for everything.

Yet, all he ever wanted was to cure his confused ill mind. Though Galileo passed away January 8, , he still leaves memories that stick with our society forever. His name is reminding us about how we can question everything. Today we might still be following the many rules of old books and religious teachings without knowing the reality. His inventions of the telescope gave us an eye on the skies above. We built off his ideas. Planets that he took detailed notes on are now our key to know where to start observing and experimenting.

His ways of doing things by hand and in his own eyes made and created a new way to learn. Galileo also influenced people. Not only did he influence the people of his time, but today too. Our society all know his name and at least one important achievement of him. Stephen Hawking also had a lot of connection to Galileo. They both had a setback such as ALS and blindness. Both of their fathers also wanted them to become doctors yet they turned out to be one of our greatest scientific thinkers.

In college, they both switch to physics though they chose medicine first. We all know that Galileo went against the ideas of church, but Steven Hawking also did not like many of the beliefs of the church officials.

Both were renown physicist, past their time frames in science, and had it bad and misunderstood by many people.

They also had a fascination for stars and cosmos. Surprisingly, Stephen Hawking was exactly years right after Galileo died.

Just take a look around you, and you can see the influence. He was the oldest of his three siblings, his sisters, Philippa and Mary, and adopted brother, Edward. He was born into a family of thinkers of the married couple, Frank and Isobel Hawking. Frank who was a parasitologist, and Isobel who was a medical research secretary. No wonder he was interested in studies. His dad wanted him to study medicine, but Stephen Hawking stood to his interests.

He was influenced by people, such as Albert Einstein, a famous physicist, who studied the same subjects as him.

Stephen Hawking was interested into studying many subjects; mathematics, physics, cosmology, and astronomy. He was at the third to bottom of his class during his first year at St. Albans School. Tahta, his mathematics teacher. He inspired Stephen Hawking to want to be just like him, a mathematics teacher. Stephen Hawking said that Mr.Mansi Sharma.
