About this deal

THE NO.1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

'A beautiful little book by a brilliant mind' DAILY TELEGRAPH

'Effortlessly instructive, absorbing, up to the minute and - where it matters - witty' GUARDIAN

The world-famous cosmologist and #1 bestselling author of A Brief History of Time leaves us with his final thoughts on the universe's biggest questions in this brilliant posthumous work.

Is there a God?

How did it all begin?

Can we predict the future?

What is inside a black hole?

Is there other intelligent life in the universe?

Will artificial intelligence outsmart us?

How do we shape the future?

Will we survive on Earth?

Should we colonise space?

Is time travel possible?

Throughout his extraordinary career, Stephen Hawking expanded our understanding of the universe and unraveled some of its greatest mysteries. But even as his theoretical work on black holes, imaginary time and multiple histories took his mind to the furthest reaches of space, Hawking always believed that science could also be used to fix the problems on our planet.

And now, as we face potentially catastrophic changes here on Earth - from climate change to dwindling natural resources to the threat of artificial super-intelligence - Stephen Hawking turns his attention to the most urgent issues for humankind.

Wide-ranging, intellectually stimulating, passionately argued, and infused with his characteristic humor, Brief Answers to the Big Questions, the final book from one of the greatest minds in history, is a personal view on the challenges we face as a human race, and where we, as a planet, are heading next.

    Is there a God? Choose not answer that question for fear of losing my account on HUKD.

    How did it all begin? It happened in the begining.

    Can we predict the future? Who cares, we cant even learn from past.

    What is inside a black hole? Luton

    Is there other intelligent life in the universe? Barely intelligent life on our own planet

    Will artificial intelligence outsmart us? Yes and YES.

    How do we shape the future? By taking billions of cyanide pills

    Will we survive on Earth? Will Earth Survive us?

    Should we colonise space? Yes, if it means getting rid of people Like Elon Musk and Bill gates.

    Is time travel possible? Anyone seen Back To the Future? (edited)
