A Brief History of Time from the Big Bang to Black Holes ~ Stephen Hawking

A Brief Review

With one of the world’s brilliant mind, Stephen Hawking has his bestselling book A Brief History of Time set astrophysics to next level. Book reveals the cosmological wonders in the brilliant mind of Hawking. His extraordinary brain reveals his theories of universes and arguments of the cosmos.

For the sake of common readers at large, the theories are simplified without any mathematical formulas except for the Einstein’s famous equation E = mc2. Book tends to answer the complex questions on universe with clarity and wit such as the existence of beginning of time, time traveling backwards, prediction/remembering our future, String theory and many more interesting subjects.

He also touches on the subject of happenings before the Big Bang and the existence of Big Crunch, where he reveals that most people believe that the time began with the Big Bang. In addition he suggests that if time has beginning than there will be an end of time too, where time will end with the Big Crunch. He emphasizes on the imaginary time, which makes his theories to be accurately proved.

Outstandingly he describes the formation of Black Holes and existence of numerous Black Holes with varying sizes and shielded with event horizon, the boundary of Black Holes. He mentions that Black Holes aren't so black.


Book ultimately creates awareness of the possibility and complexity of unification of physics, which would explain whole universe with a theory. Book also has the description of the expansion of our universe.

    1. Sangay, Hawkings is one of my favorite author. Unlike other scientist who uses complex tools, ideas and concepts, Hawkings churns your fascination and imagination in simple daily English. The only equation he uses in the book is E=MC2. He was told by his publisher that with even formula he uses in his book, it will cut its sales by half. The other book that you need to get a grab on is his Theory of Everything, Black Holes and Baby Universes, where you will find rare literature about the author's early life and how he relapsed into Motor Neuron Disease. The story is heart rending.
