Stephen Hawking's worldwide bestseller, A Brief History of Time, has been a landmark publication in scientific books. A Briefer History of Time expands on the great subjects of the original. Purely technical concepts, such as the mathematics of chaotic boundary conditions, are gone. Conversely, subjects of wide interest have now been given entire chapters of their own, including relativity, curved space, and quantum theory. CD Rom of full-colour illustrations make A Briefer History of Time an exhilarating addition in its own right to the literature of science.show more

Back cover copy

Stephen Hawking's worldwide bestseller, A Brief History of Time, is a landmark volume. Its author's engaging voice is one reason, and the compelling subjects he addresses is another: the nature of space and time, the role of God in creation, the history and future of the universe. A Briefer History of Time is even more accessible - as well as up-to-date with the latest scientific observations and findings. It will guide non-scientists everywhere in the ongoing search for the tantalising secrets at the heart of time and space. Erik studied and worked in theatre for seven years in New York City. Now a Los Angeles resident, he has worked consistently in voice-over. TV highlights include ER and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Erik is also an accomplished studio artist and percussionist.
