Stephen Hawking set out to write this book to help 'non-scientists' understand the basic questions of physics: "where did the universe come from? How and why did it begin? Will it come to an end, and if so, how?" He was warned before publishing that each equation included in the book would half the readership, and so he kept only one, "Einstein's famous equation, E = mc[squared]."
A near fine copy in bright dustjacket, with slight creasing to extremities.
