A Brief History of Time is a popular science book written by Stephen Hawking and first published by the Bantam Dell Publishing Group in 1988. It became a best-seller and has sold more than 9 million copies. It was also on the London Sunday Times best-seller list for more than four years.

As a grade 11 student who is greatly interested in Physics, I loved this book. Dr. Hawking managed to explain our universe in great and accurate detail, but in forms and words simple enough for a student to understand. This book was very thorough when explaining everything about our universe, from the forces that control it, to the particles that occupy it, and the cause for all of it. He also presented an unique perspective that compels me to further my knowledge in these areas. I am very glad I chose this book for my physics project and for any future projects I will absolutely choose another book by Dr. Hawking.
