I když se jedná pouze o sbírku několika esejí a jednoho interview v britské televizi, kniha se mi moc líbila a Stephen Hawking opravdu umí upoutat čtenáře i pro tyto velice vědecká témata. Po přečtení nemůžu s klidným srdcem povědět, že jsem rozuměl všemu, co zde bylo psáno, ale určitě se k tomuto autorovi zase jednou vrátím. Doporučuji.
