Publisher's Summary

Seeking to uncover the holy grail of science, the elusive Theory of Everything that lies at the heart of the cosmos, Professor Stephen Hawking takes us to the cutting edge of theoretical physics. In a realm where truth is often stranger than fiction, he explains in layman's terms the principles that control our universe. Hawking is one of the most influential thinkers of our time, an intellectual icon, known not only for the adventurousness of his ideas but for the clarity with which he expresses them. This is essential listening for all those who want to understand the universe in which we live.

Accessible but some less interesting bits

Sometimes easy to let your mind wander but on the whole very interesting and accessible even for someone who isn't a scientist

More difficult to follow than A Brief History of Time

This book seems to assume a good grasp of physics and quite frequently the opportunity to simplify the 'text' is passed up in favour of using the correct vocab rather than terms that are more readily understood by non-scientists. That said, I suspect 2nd and 3rd 'readings' would help with understanding the concepts.
