Review quote

"Hawking and Mlodinow provide one of the most lucid discussions of this complex topic ever written for a general audience. . . . [They] maintain the same wry, lively tone that made "A Brief History of Time" such a delight."--"Publishers Weekly", starred review "May be the clearest introduction to physics ever . . . An utterly engrossing read."--"Booklist "
