About the product «Theory of Everything» is the story of the Universe, told by Stephen Hawking in a familiar — transparent and witty — manner and complemented by fantastic images from the Hubble Space Telescope that will take your breath away. The illustrations and diagrams created especially for this book will help you understand the very theories and concepts that leading scientists around the world battle every day. The book brings together seven lectures, covering a wide range of topics from the Big Bang and black holes to string theory. The author describes ideas about the Universe — from the postulate that the Earth is in the shape of a ball, to the theory of the expansion of the Universe, based on recent observations. However, Stephen Hawking argues with particular passion about the incessant search for a theory of everything, the appearance of which, according to the author, will mark a triumph of the human mind. This is a book for everyone who has ever gazed into the night sky and wondered what is hidden in its inky blue.
