This is a well written book by two very renowned physicists. I enjoyed the book very much because it made me think about some very complex issues in regards to the meaning of our existence. It is certainly not easy reading but also not the most complex in this type of genre. That being said, it is easy enough to get through with a bit of effort and rewarding in that it gives you some very valuable information to ponder. Over all I would give this book a positive recommendation if you're interested in the topic.

The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow mostly succeeds at being accessible to the average reader given the academic subject matter. Still, it was hard to wrap my mind around some of the concepts. The examples were clear, but like physics itself, understanding them often required thinking in multiple dimensions.

This book, as others like it, is a welcomed continual plea to bring scientific thinking to the greater public. The world surprisingly still leans heavily on superstition in trying to make sense of this mysterious space called the universe.
