“The Grand Design” by Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow Review

96The most fundamental questions about the origins of the universe and of life itself, once the province of philosophy, now occupy the territory where scientists, philosophers, and theologians meet—if only to disagree. In their new book, Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow present the most recent scientific thinking about the mysteries of the universe, in nontechnical language marked by both brilliance and simplicity. In The Grand Design they explain that according to quantum theory, the cosmos does not have just a single existence or history, but rather that every possible history of the universe exists simultaneously. When applied to the universe as a whole, this idea calls into question the very notion of cause and effect.

If you are just freshly starting with being interested in how universe works and all that, then this book is for you. Even if you are someone who knows a lot about the universe, then you should also read it. Because you never know what you may learn from one of the smartest people who ever lived aka Stephen Hawking.

This book is a nonfiction and a science book which makes it easier for people to understand how universe works and how very complicated stuff in science works. But of course this book requires knowing a little bit about universe and it also requires you being interested in the topic. Because if you are not interested in universe it will be a torture to read this book.

In this book both Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow shows amazing writing skills together with some huge explanatory skills. I personally learned a lot of things from this book.

The whole M-theory which Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow presents in this book, in my opinion doesn’t fully work. But what do I know right?

This book explains in an easy way to understand a little bit how M-theory and universe works. Of course it isn’t so easy that a 7 year old would understand, but it is easy so that a 16 year old would understand. This book unpacks the universe a little bit and explain to us in basics how they work.

We have illustrations in this book which makes it easier for us to keep track of what we are reading in this book.

I give this book 5 / 5
