    Story
    (119)

    With characteristic exuberance, Stephen Hawking invites us to be fellow travelers on this extraordinary voyage through spacetime, as he seeks "to combine Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and Richard Feynman's idea of multiple histories into one complete unified theory that will describe everything that happens in the universe."

    Adam says: "Educational and yet fun."
    "Great book."

    Story
    If you could sum up The Universe in a Nutshell in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting concise funny


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Hawking does a great job in summing up a bunch of physics questions and theories in this book. He also reveals that he has a sense of humor reminiscent of Douglas Adams of Hitchhikers Guide.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Prebble’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I am still perplexed by the chapter on the histories of the universe but the way he explained time travel and other theories was very straightforward and interesting.
