Emotional posthumous publication, misunderstood by many reviews
29 October 2018
There are a number of reviews providing detailed cross sectional analysis with page references trying to spot minor inconsistencies in this book - whilst totally missing the point. The rawness of the book is part of the appeal, it isn't a work that the late Professor Hawking had the opportunity to craft, to shape into a consistent narrative. It's his final project which was put together for him after he died. It is a wonderful collection of thoughts from one of the greatest minds of our age. One really nice thing about the book is that it is so neatly broken down into sections. This means that, unlike a Brief History of Time you can actually dip in and out of this book. It is accessible, thought provoking and a fitting final works from the great man. The price offers exceptional value, and is something everyone should try to make an effort to read.
