New Stephen Hawking book to be published

29th June 2010

A new book co-written by theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking is set to be published this September.

The Grand Design will be released on September 9th and will be the first book the former Cambridge mathematics professor has worked on since 2001's The Universe in a Nutshell.

Fellow physicist Leonard Mlodinow, the author of The Drunkard's Walk, has worked on the new title with Hawking and the book is expected to become an instant bestseller.

Speaking to US publisher Bantam Dell, book news provider GalleyCat was told: 'Drawing on 40 years of Hawking's own research and a recent series of extraordinary astronomical observations and theoretical breakthroughs, Hawking and Mlodinow examine the evidence for the existence of a "unified theory" - a single theory that can describe and explain all the forces of nature.'

The publisher also claimed that The Grand Design will present readers with startling new research dealing with the inner workings of the universe as well as its origins.

Hawking's first book, A Brief History of Time, was published on April 1st 1988. The writer has received a number of accolades since then, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America's highest civilian honour.
