A Brief History of Time is a famous work of popular science. The famous physicist, in some ways successor to Isaac Newton and Einstein, explains complex concepts in astronomy and physics in a way that anyone can understand.
Stephen Hawking believed strongly that everyone, at one time or another, asks a few basic questions, such as "How did the universe begin?" and "How does the universe work?" While we don't have complete answers for these questions, or any of the others posed in the book, Hawking did his best to outline our understanding of these questions.
