Summary
Along with Caltech physicist Mlodinow (The drunkard's walk), University of Cambridge cosmologist Hawking (A brief history of time) mixes cutting-edge physics to answer three key questions (Why is there something rather than nothing? Why do we exist? Why this particular set of laws and not some other?) and explains that scientists are approaching what is called "M-theory," a collection of overlapping theories (including string theory) that fill in many (but not all) the blank spots in quantum physics
Summary
Presents a new study of the cosmos that explains the latest theories on why the universe and life exist and why they work the way they do, through the concept of the multiverse, or "m-theory," that attempts to construct a grand unified design
