The Theory of Everything: The Origin and Fate of the Universe
على الرغم من إنه بيتعرض لنظريات ال
Quantum mechanics, Relativity, Thermodynamics, Big bang, black holes...
إلا إن طريقة الكاتب جد مبسطة و التشبيهات التي يستخدمها بسيطة في أغلب الأحيان.
المحاضرات الأولى في الكتاب، تغطي تطور الفكر البشري في نظرته للكون و الأرض و شكلهم.
بطبيعة الحال، بيحفز عدد من الأسئلة مثل:
ما هو شكل أطراف الكون؟
في أي جزء من الكون تقع الكرة الأرضية؟
هل الزمن يسير في خط واحط؟ أم بالإمكان رؤية الزمن بالعكس؟

I was originally homeless when I first discovered this book, and living in my car with my 2 cats. I would head to the library on special days to kill time, and immediately go to this book and throw myself into its pages. I'd alw ...more
Stephen Hawking tries to explain the origin of the Universe or The Big Bang without going into the technicalities and also gives a brief overview of various theories present that try to explain the state of the Universe (even the String theory).
The writing is simple but still multiple readings will be required to comple ...more
It's pitched at an audience that is already comfortable with the concepts of modern physics. A reader who lacks this background may find it a bit frustrating.
Some of this material is familiar from A Brief History of Time , but since it's been over 15 years since I read that title, I didn't find it a drawback.
My only real complaint about this title, or Hawking in general, is tha ...more
Some aspects of this book had me scratching my head, particularly where it concerns the issue of "order" and "disorder" in scientific terms. Many processes are classified as examples of a natural tendency toward disorder, to such a degree that this makes me wonder to the general validity of this concept. One thing t ...more
In physicist Stephen Hawking's brilliant opus, A Brief History of Time, he presented us with a bold new look at our universe, how it began, and how our old views of physics and tired theories about the creation of the universe were no longer relevant. In other words, Hawking gave us a new look at our world, our universe, and ourselves. Now, available for the first time in trade paperback, Hawking presents an even more comprehensive look at our universe, its creation, and how we see ourselves wi
الكتاب منظم بشكل جميل على شكل محاضرات وكل محاضرة تذكر بعضاً من تلك النظريات الجديدة وبكلمات يفهمها القاريء الغير ملم بالمصطلحات الفيزيائية.
من عنوان الكتاب البرفسور ستيفن هوكينج يحاول أن يقدم للقاريء الطرق التي تجعل العلماء يتوصلون لنظرية كل شيء أو تلك النظرية التي تجعلك تفهم كل ما يحصل في هذا العالم (الفيزيائي). أتمنى ترجمة هذا الكتاب للعربية لأنه قد ...more
It tries to be an easy-reading overview of all of cosmology - or at least all of the cosmology relevant to Stephen Hawking's career, wh ...more
A pesar de ser relativamente viejo para un libro científico (el texto es original de 1996) es capaz de explicar con mejor detalle el estado actual de la ...more
Starts out simple and gets really complicated, I didn't understand the last chapters in the least, but they did make look up at the sky and think "Ooo...cool!".
Hawking is the personification of the science teacher I always wish I had. He explains thinks clearly without being patronizing and wit is constantly infused into the text, making it not only fascinating but fun to read. ...more
I absolutely loved this book. It was so ...more
Not that it's surprising. And I thought I was a nerd.
Still, I have a marginal interest in astronomy, and if I ever have the chance to explore that interest I probably ought to return to this and see if I can actually comprehend this stuff.

2nd Lecture: The Expanding Universe
3rd Lecture: Black Holes
4th Lecture: Black Holes Ain't So Black

"...I started to think about black holes as I was getting into bad. My disability made this rather a slow process, so I had plenty of time." Haha
Some of the questions are still unanswered, but the quest to explore more and logically track the phenomenon observed in our surrounding are some of the things that beautify this book.
This book consist of 7 lectures from Stephen Hawkings opening with "Idea of The Universe ".
It lays stress to the thoughts how thoughts of celestial objects evolved. Followed by "The Expanding ...more
The book is mainly about discussing the universe in general so you will expect while reading it to move from the theories about the beginning of the universe, passing by some of the weird events like the black holes and ending with the ...more
Unlike Hawking's latest book "The Grand Design", in this one he le ...more
