Through the course of this book, Hawking delves into a number of subjects in the field of cosmology, which include the Big Bang, light cones, black holes, and the strong theory. The goal of this book is to provide the readers with an overview of the subject. However, Hawking also touches on some complex mathematics, which is unusual for science books. The readers are also provided with information on the possibility of time travelling and worm holes. Hawking has only included a single equation in this book, which is E=mc2, and explains the chances of having a universe void of a quantum singularity at the beginning of time.
The concepts present in this book are extremely vast, leaving the readers with a sense of admiration of Hawking’s deep understanding of cosmology. Brief History Of Time: From The Big Bang To Black Holes was initially published in the year 1988, and has been a bestseller ever since, selling more than 10 million copies. This book was also present in the Sunday Times best-seller list for a record-breaking 237 weeks.
