First published in 2010, The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking is a thought-provoking science book co-written by Leonard Mlodinow. In this book, both physicists explores and inspects the history and theories of science in finding explanations on the existence of the universe. It states that the Big Bang is purely a result of the physics laws and bringing up God is probably unnecessary to explain the origins of the universe. In defending his view, Hawking once said, “One can’t prove that God doesn’t exist, but science makes God unnecessary.”

Summary of the Book
When and how did the universe begin? Why are we here? Why is there something rather than nothing? What is the nature of reality? Why are the laws of nature so finely tuned as to allow for the existence of beings like ourselves? And, finally, is the apparent “grand design” of our universe evidence of a benevolent creator who set things in motion—or does science offer another explanation?
A succinct, startling, and lavishly illustrated guide to discoveries that are altering our understanding and threatening some of our most cherished belief systems, The Grand Design is a book that will inform—and provoke—like no other.
Reviews of The Grand Design
“In this short and sprightly book…Hawking and Mlodinow take the reader through a whirlwind tour of fundamental physics and cosmology.” —The Wall Street Journal
“Fascinating…a wealth of ideas [that] leave us with a clearer understanding of modern physics in all its invigorating complexity.” —Los Angeles Times
“The authors bring to the field an anecdotal clarity that is something of a first for this genre…Making science like this interesting is not all that hard; making it accessible is the real trick.” —Time Magazine
“Provocative pop science, an exploration of the latest thinking about the origins of our universe.” —The New York Times
