FROM ONE OF THE MOST BRILLIANT MINDS OF OUR TIME COMES A BOOK THAT CLARIFIES HIS MOST IMPORTANT IDEAS Stephen Hawking's worldwide bestseller A Brief History of Time remains a landmark volume in scientific writing. But for readers who have asked for a more accessible formulation of its key concepts-the nature of space and time, the role of God in creation, and the history and future of the universe-A Briefer History of Time is Professor Hawking's response. Although "briefer," this book is much more than a mere explanation of Hawking's earlier work. A Briefer History of Time both clarifies and expands on the great subjects of the original, and records the latest developments in the field-from string theory to the search for a unified theory of all the forces of physics. Thirty-seven full-color illustrations enhance the text and make A Briefer History of Time an exhilarating and must-have addition in its own right to the great literature of science and ideas.

"Stephen Hawking's A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME was a publishing phenomenon--millions sold, maybe a few dozen fully understood. This BRIEFER HISTORY is a more listener-friendly edition, shorter on math but still heavy on wonder. Hawking explains relativity and quantum mechanics and describes the search for a theory that unites the two. Erik Davies, who also narrated Brian Greene's THE FABRIC OF THE COSMOS, shows his experience with audiobooks on string theory. His youthful voice softens the edges of the difficult material, and he moves at just the right speed in this journey through time. Why the publisher decided to include the entire glossary in the audio edition, however, is an unsolved mystery. D.B. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
