A pairing of two classic science texts by one of the greatest minds of our time.

For the The Illustrated A Brief History of Time, expanded from its original publication in 1988, Professor Stephen Hawking prepared a new introduction to the book, wrote an entirely new chapter on wormholes and time travel, and updated the original text. This edition is enhanced throughout with more than 240 full-color illustrations, including satellite images, photographs made possible by spectacular technological advances such as the Hubble Space Telescope, and computer-generated images of three- and four-dimensional realities. A classic work that now brings to the reader the latest understanding of cosmology, The Illustrated A Brief History of Time is the story of the ongoing search for the secrets at the heart of time and space.

In The Universe in a Nutshell, Professor Hawking takes us to the cutting edge of theoretical physics, where he seeks to uncover the grail of science—the elusive "Theory of Everything" that lies at the heart of the cosmos. In his accessible and often playful style, he guides us on his search to uncover the secrets of the universe—from supergravity to supersymmetry, from quantum theory to M theory, from holography to duality. Copious four-color illustrations help clarify this journey into a surreal wonderland where particles, sheets, and strings move in eleven dimensions and where the original cosmic seed from which our universe sprang was a tiny nut.

The Universe in a Nutshell is essential reading for all of us who want to understand the universe in which we live. Like its companion volume, A Brief History of Time, it conveys the excitement felt within the scientific community as the secrets of the cosmos reveal themselves.
