This is not exactly one of my usual books to read, but I picked it up out of curiosity. It promises to give a simpler explanation of what the universe is made of, and it’s amazing how Hawking explains things in a concise yet interesting manner. I was once interested in Science, but throughout the course of my education, I was intimidated by all the calculations, terms, cycles, and other stuff you have to memorize. With this book, that kid who once wondered where we come from was resurrected. That curious kid is still in me. While some of the terms and mathematical equations are still too complicated for me to understand, the fact that I can say “black holes ain’t so black” just shows that Hawking did a good job imparting knowledge and fueling the interest in Science in me.
I am off to read “A Briefer History of Time” now ;)
