  • A Brief History of Time

    Author: Stephen Hawking
    Publisher: Random House Piublishing
    Language: English

    #1 New York Times best seller. This book explores such profound questions as: How did the universe begin and what made its start possible? Does time always flow forward? Is the universe unending or are there boundaries? Are there other dimensions in space?

    Told in language we all can understand, A Brief History of Time plunges into the exotic realms of black holes and quarks, of antimatter and “arrows of time,” of the big bang and a bigger God, where the possibilities are wondrous and unexpected. With exciting images and profound imagination, Stephen Hawking brings us closer to the ultimate secrets at the very heart of creation.

  • Guns, Germs, and Steel

    Author: Jared Diamond
    Publisher: WW Norton
    Language: English

    This book, artfully and convincingly argues that geographical and environmental factors shaped the modern world. Societies that had had a head start in food production advanced beyond the hunter-gatherer stage, and then developed religion – as well as nasty germs and potent weapons of war – and adventured on sea and land to conquer and decimate preliterate cultures. A major advance in our understanding of human societies, Guns, Germs, and Steel chronicles the way that the modern world came to be and stunningly dismantles racially based theories of human history.
