While there are fascinating facts in the scientific data, the casual reader may not always be able to distinguish fact from speculation as they are treated with equal footing throughout the book. I've been following quantum theory and physics for about 15 years now. Physicist Peter Woit , of Columbia University , has criticized the book: The Guardian. God or the Laws of Nature" explains that "The Grand Design breaks the news, bitter to some, that … to create a universe from absolute nothing God is not necessary.
For this reason I give it three stars for some intellectual bias and lack of distinguishing between Hawking's school of opinion about the facts and the actual truth about the facts. I've been following quantum theory and physics for about 15 years now.
This book brings together most of what has been discovered and written about in that time, AND has expanded a theory or two into a more comprehensive whole than has been previously published for the general public to digest. I am not a mathematician, so when I say digest , I mean that understanding these laws and underlying principals sometimes takes more time and I must use other forms of thinking to grasp these concepts.
For me this book was exciting because it was comprehensive without being long and getting bogged down in hard to follow science. Stephen Hawking at his best Once again Dr.
Hawking has delivered the universe and the intricacies there of into our living room. Written for the layman without the mathematics, this discourse is both intriguing and understandable. I recommend this work for anyone who wishes to read how science describes our creation and existence. God bless our scientists and researchers for their patience and cooperation.
May they continue to us keep us interested and amazed Paperback Verified Purchase. Unless you have a strong understanding of physics and understand all the lingo that goes with it, you will not understand this book.
It is not for the average person The book starts with the very first cosmologic laws of Greek philosophers, Copernic And Newton, goes to quantic mechanics and finishes with de m-theory. Of course is not possible to explain everything in detail. To whom have no idea of what is it about, the book is still the best for starting. But one will have to consult other sources while reading I would recommend excellent internet videos and text. For those who knows the subject from other sources, it is a very comprehensive overview.
I marvel at how Stephan Hawking was able to describe such complex and abstract scientific ideas and discoveries in such understandable terms.
I learned that he had a delightful sense of humor as well. This book adds insight to the limits of human perception and provides a philosophical bridge to expanded insight into possible realities of the universe. My only disappointment was when I suddenly found myself at the end of the book before I expected it. I was so much looking forward to the next chapter One person found this helpful. Well written, but goes beyond my comprehension abilities.
Maybe I just should've stuck with reading "Twinkle, twinkle little star". As an Electrical engineer from the 80's, I wish I would have read this book before going to college It paints a picture of physics and how things interact like nothing else I have read. Mr Hawking's approach is stunningly simple and insightful. If you like Sci-Fi or math or just have an inquisitive mind buy this book and read it.
You won't put it down and when you want to look smart, explain why time "slows down" as you approach the speed of like PS a great gift for a science based college student See all 1, reviews.

Physicist Peter Woit , of Columbia University , has criticized the book: The book's rather conventional claim that "God is unnecessary" for explaining physics and early universe cosmology has provided a lot of publicity for the book.
In Scientific American , John Horgan is not sympathetic to the book: Critics call this the " Alice's Restaurant problem," a reference to the refrain of the old Arlo Guthrie folk song: The anthropic principle has always struck me as so dumb that I can't understand why anyone takes it seriously.
It's cosmology's version of creationism. The physicist Tony Rothman , with whom I worked at Scientific American in the s, liked to say that the anthropic principle in any form is completely ridiculous and hence should be called CRAP. Hawking is telling us that unconfirmable M-theory plus the anthropic tautology represents the end of that quest. The Economist is also critical of the book: Hawking and Mlodinow " It is the bare bones of quantum mechanics that have proved to be consistent with what is presently known of the subatomic world.
The authors' interpretations and extrapolations of it have not been subjected to any decisive tests, and it is not clear that they ever could be. Once upon a time it was the province of philosophy to propose ambitious and outlandish theories in advance of any concrete evidence for them. Perhaps science, as Professor Hawking and Mr Mlodinow practice it in their airier moments, has indeed changed places with philosophy, though probably not quite in the way that they think.
The Bishop of Swindon , Dr.
Lee Rayfield , said, "Science can never prove the non-existence of God, just as it can never prove the existence of God. Fraser N. Watts  said "a creator God provides a reasonable and credible explanation of why there is a universe, and That view is not undermined by what Hawking has said. Denis Alexander responded to Stephen Hawking 's The Grand Design by stating that "the 'god' that Stephen Hawking is trying to debunk is not the creator God of the Abrahamic faiths who really is the ultimate explanation for why there is something rather than nothing", adding that "Hawking's god is a god-of-the-gaps used to plug present gaps in our scientific knowledge.
