The Grand Design is yet another book by the mastermind Stephen Hawking concerning the makeup of our universe. While a fascinating read, the book spends almost its entirety on the history of the field which built the foundation for quantum physics. A Layman’s History of Physics would be a much more apt title. The book only expresses one real opinion which is made plain at the very end—essentially that M-Theory rocks and everything else sucks.
Not Hawking’s best. A tantalizing and thought-provoking read nonetheless.
