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 unravelled 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 humour, 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.

This book is the culmination of some of the big questions that many of us have been asking for centuries. Stephen in his infinite wisdom documented many of his thoughts in notes over the years that allowed for the creation of this publication. While many of us perceive physics and Hawking himself as untouchable and not understandable, he makes every effort here to explain to the world in non-mathematical means what his personal, scientific thoughts are on these questions. Some may become offended by his scientific approach. However, he makes his point clear that he is not intending to question or offend anyone’s faith, he is simply putting forth his scientific insights and opinions to answer questions we have all asked ourselves and that he has been asked over the years based on his experience and intellect.
