    The Thief is a seasoned pickpocket. Anonymous in his tailored suit, he weaves in and out of Tokyo crowds, stealing wallets from strangers so smoothly that sometimes he doesn't even remember the snatch. Most people are just a blur to him; nameless faces from whom he chooses his victims. He has no family, no friends, no connections.... But he does have a past, which finally catches up with him when Ishikawa, his first partner, reappears in his life and offers him a job he can't refuse.

    If you could sum up The Thief in three words, what would they be?

    This is my first book by this author and I enjoyed it. The narration created vivid images of the characters and scenes in my mind. The story ends inconclusively. I guess there will be a sequel.

    The most fundamental questions about the origins of the universe and of life itself, once the province of philosophy, now occupy the territory where scientists, philosophers, and theologians meet—if only to disagree. In their new book, Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow present the most recent scientific thinking about the mysteries of the universe, in nontechnical language marked by both brilliance and simplicity.

    What did you like best about The Grand Design? What did you like least?

    I really like the thorough explanation of 'model dependent realism'.I don't like the fact that despite the flaws of relativity, the author projects it as absolute truth and uses it as a basis for validating M-theory.


    What could Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The book carries primarily one school of thought and focuses too much on main stream physics. A discussion of recent experiments showing faster than light speeds, the source charge problem, wave nature of gravity, etc would have balanced things.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was okay. It is a challenge explaining scientific concepts to everyday listeners.


    Do you think The Grand Design needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    A follow-up book presenting the same views wouldn't be of any use.
