    I have a feeling that the publishing industry is milking Stephen Hawking. There was a time when we had a dashing physicist named Richard Feynman who used LSD and played banjo in a strip club. The naked pole dancers didn?t distract him from formulating quantum electrodynamics. He was ...

    After reading Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything and Brian Greene's The Fabric of the Cosmos, I felt that I might finally be ready for my first Hawking book. There were a couple of sections that I re-read, in an attempt to make concrete some of the more abstract aspects...

    When this book was released, I was reading a story about it on-line, and the headline said something like: ?Stephen Hawking Says There Is No God?. Then I made the critical mistake of looking at the user comments under the story. It was the usual collection of badly spelled notes fr...

    I was given this book as a reward for helping a friend pick up and deliver newly purchased furniture. As is the case with most such gifts, I began to read it immediately. I was almost immediately turned off by the text owing to an extraordinary display of ignorance on the part of th...

    In the first chapter Hawking says that his aim is to provide an answer to "Life, Universe and Everything" and goes on to assure us that his answer will not merely be "42". After just completing the last chapter, I think I still prefer "42". ...

    Look John look! See the pop science bestseller. See the glossy paper. See the large font. See the wide margins. See the world-famous physicist. See the ghostwriter. See the double slit experiment! Maybe you have seen it before. But you can never see the double slit experimen...

    Stephen Hawking is smarter than I am. That's no big feat because two of my cats are smarter than I am. The other cat is a certifiable idiot. But Hawking is way smarter than I am. The Grand Design is Hawking's explanation, more or less, about why the universe is the way it is. The ...

    It's a funny thing being a cosmologist in the greater Los Angeles area. Back when I was a partying single graduate student, I'd frequently hit the town for some fun. Inevitably I'd meet someone, strike up a conversation, and they might ask me what I did for a living. "Oh, I'm a cosm...

    Wake me up when you actually define M-Theory. (Which has yet to be defined) This was a short read that cost WAY TOO MUCH money. Any book I can read in a day should cost less than 9 dollars. ...

    As a cosmologist and a Stephen Hawking fan, I have a real issue with this book. His statement, that the Universe unpacks itself and therefore does not need a creator is based on some really flawed logic called 'model dependent realism'. MDR is a way of comparing reality to a model, if ...

    There are only a couple of positives that I can think to say about this book. Firstly, Hawking has some Feynman-like qualities in being able to lucidly express important ideas in physics such as time dilation in special relativity and the double slit experiment. Secondly, his philosoph...

    Once again, I am awed and blown away by the f'ing awesomeness of the universe, and it struck me how presumptuous many of us are considering our insignificance in the grand scope of things. I have two science based degrees, but Physics was never my strong suit, and I'd be lying if I ...

    Note: I'm a physicist, so my experience reading this was colored by my training. Hawking and Mlodinow begin by declaring, on the very first page, that "philosophy is dead," and that modern science alone must carry our search for knowledge into the future. Several pages later, they l...

    Obviously nobody needs me to confirm what a brilliant scientist Hawking is. And if his brain didn't work in the meticulous and dissecting manner that it does mankind would not have benefited from his various discoveries. Having said that, I was troubled in reading this book. Troubled b...
