A Brief History of Time
In the 28 years since its first publication, A Brief History of Time has become a landmark volume in scientific writing, with more than 9 million copies in 40 languages sold worldwide. Hawking’s succinct style, coupled with a desire to reveal the elegance behind staggering scientific concepts, has illuminated the secrets of the universe for countless inquisitive readers.

Chaos: Making a New Science
'Where chaos begins, classical science stops.' This sentence, from the prologue to Gleick's enthralling book, conveys the dramatic impact of a theory that initially appeared to subvert the very laws of nature. Those laws were predicated on a degree of 'special ignorance' about the disorder inherent in every aspect of our world – from Earth's atmosphere to the human heart. They assumed that Newton's rules of motion provided 'a bridge of mathematical certainty', and that in any system – be it cotton prices, a waterwheel or a measles epidemic – small disturbances had minor effects.

The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory
In the twentieth century Newtonian physics was replaced with two fundamental theories that form the foundation for our understanding of the laws of the universe: Einstein's general theory of relativity (which accounts for the macroscopic world of the heavenly planets and their motion) and quantum mechanics (which deals with the microscopic world of atomic and subatomic particles). Each theory works perfectly. They just happen to be incompatible with one another. The answer? String theory.
