Stephen Hawking's Best Books: Black Holes, Multiverses and Singularities | SpaceBy Pooja Borkar Leave a Comment. Top Books. Stephen Hawking, the greatest physicist, and cosmologist of our times tried to explain some of the most complicated questions of life and universe in the simplest way possible. Stephen Hawking has written many books which demonstrate the genius that he was. As the title suggests, he writes about the Big Bang Theory, black holes and other vital concepts like space and time. It promotes the vision of scientists that science is the most helpful medium to solve the problems on planet Earth. The book is an explanation to the M-theory of Dimensions.

But Hawking was also a prolific author who wrote several books over the course of his life — some aimed at general readers, some for kids, some with illustrations, but all dedicated to explaining and clarifying his scientific theories and discoveries. It went on to sell more than a million copies in its first year , a remarkable achievement for a book about science.

Here are six of his most popular books:. Was there a beginning of time? Could time run backwards? Is the universe infinite or does it have boundaries? These are just some of the questions considered in an internationally acclaimed masterpiece by one of the world's greatest thinkers. It begins by reviewing the great theories of the cosmos from Newton to Einstein, before delving into the secrets which still lie at the heart of space and time, from the Big Bang to black holes, via spiral galaxies and strong theory. When and how did the universe begin?

Physicist Stephen Hawking, whose death was announced March 14, wrote prodigiously for both a popular audience and the scientific community over the course of his career, authoring or co-authoring at least 15 books, according to his personal website. Here's a look through Hawking's written works and select co-authored works. Hawking's first book, " The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time " Cambridge University Press, , written with George Ellis, wasn't for a popular audience at all — it's a physics textbook that uses Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity to explain how massive stars turn into black holes and how singularities can exist in space-time. The first popular book that Hawking wrote, " A Brief History of Time " Bantam Press, takes nonscientists through the fundamentals of cosmology — the origin of the universe and how it might end. The book dives into gravity, black holes, the Big Bang, the nature of time and the search for a grand unifying theory that ties it all together. Hawking's book " The Universe in a Nutshell " Bantam Books, explored cutting-edge research into theoretical physics, describing concepts including supergravity, supersymmetry, quantum theory, M-theory and more for a nonexpert audience. The book updates readers on developments made since "A Brief History of Time.
