    I?m embarrassed by my lack of scientific knowledge. Somehow i was able to earn a Master?s Degree without ever taking a science class after HS freshman biology! Seriously. I agree wholeheartedly with one of the messages in this book that that just can?t happen. We need to familiar...

    To start off, not for a moment would I profess to understand the sciences of Stephen Hawking. But I have avidly read many of his books because I am fascinated with the questions and the answers he provides. And he is honest about the questions he is unable to answer. If you don?t wan...

    Why 3 stars if the book is well-written? Well, there is NOTHING NEW. He just said again and again what he always said... Maybe it should be sold as "Hawking in 90 minutes" or "Hawking for Dummies"... Yes, his life was really RICH in experiencies, and pain, and fight to overcome an ...

    A few years ago, The Times newspaper ran a headline on the front page which said 'Hawking: God Did Not Create Universe'. The article was illustrated. God was shown in a drawing by Michelangelo, looking thunderous. They printed a photo of me, looking smug. They made it look like a duel ...

    Enjoyed reading sage advice from Hawking. It was a much quicker read than ?A Brief History of Time.? He did a nice job of outlining key discoveries and even nicer at explaining what it means to earthlings. We have work to do, and need to be diligent. I?m so glad he left us wi...

    In this book Stephen Hawking, possibly the last book written by him, answers some big questions and makes some predictions for the future taking into account the current state of science. How did it all begin? Is there other intelligent life in the universe? Is time travel possible? Ob...

    Having always had much admiration for the way Stephen Hawking has lived his life, overcoming adversity to become one of the brightest stars in our sky (pun absolutely intended), I was intrigued to see what his last contribution would bring with it. One of the things I most appreciate a...

    I bought this book because I admire Stephen Hawking and wanted to learn more about science. He asks questions in this book that I haven't thought of like what is in a black hole. There is no definitive answer to this question, but I did learn that a black hole is a collasped star that ...

    Will humanity survive? Should we colonize space? Does God exist? These are just a few of the questions Hawking addresses in this wide-ranging, passionately argued final book from one of the greatest minds in history. The black holes are still characterised only by their overall mass, e...

    A fascinating read. My take-away points: Is there a god? Science says nope. Not really. Unless you?d like to refer to the forces that govern our universe as god, but the idea of a divine creator isn?t one Stephen Hawking prescribes to. What about aliens? Possible. Quantum ...

    A total page-turner, this book is quite remarkable it gives you a sense of a personal interview between Dr. Hawking and the reader. The Big questions are: Is there a God? How did it all begin? Is time travel possible? What is inside of a black hole? Is there other intelligent ...

    "So remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don't just give up...

    Al though I have read many books on physics and cosmology it is refreshing to have a scientist not shy away from the ig questions and go on a limb and actually say what they think. I guess when you have nothing to lose you can actually go out on a limb. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and ...

    Oh, man, I need to admit an embarrassing fact. It?s the first book by Stephen Hawking I?ve read so far. No, of course, I am familiar with his awesome achievements in science, but I had simply postponed reading his bestselling offerings for later. It?s just that Hawking?s discov...

    Another brief, well explained & captivating book from Stephen Hawking. Add to this the emotional dimension due to the fact it is his last (posthumous) book, and you'll get all the reasons to read it, if you're into science or just curious about our current knowledge of the universe...

    I have an awe and the upmost respect for the brilliant mind of Professor Hawking. But this book could have waited and been sent to a good editor before being published. There were the same paragraphs in different chapters and awkward wording throughout. So what was the hurry? Perhaps, ...
