Summary
"Stephen Hawking is the best-known theoretical physicist alive today but few people outside his field know what he has done. To the public at large he is a legendary figure of tragic dimensions - a brilliant scientist and author of the phenomenal bestseller, A Brief History of Time - and yet confined to a wheelchair, unable to speak or write."--BOOK JACKET. "Hawking has mastered the two great theories of physics from this century, Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. He has made breath-taking discoveries about where these theories break down or overlap, such as the edge of a Black Hole or the Big Bang origin of the Universe. Here is the perfect beginner's guide to Hawking's work including his present research into Quantum Gravity."--BOOK JACKET.
