Has anybody read his latest yet? I havn't had the time to get one but would like to hear what the scientists among us especially have to say about it.

Downloaded it a while back but I haven't got past the first chapter or so yet. Need to find some time when I can concentrate properly:

Judging by his last two books this one is bound to be great.

It's significantly easier to understand than the Brief History of time or God created the Integers. Some may argue that certain scientific truths may be glossed over, or even misrepresented when scientists try to popularise their work, but in the case of The Grand Design I can honestly say this is not so. Accessible and beautifully written. Most of all, it is nearly as awe-inspiring as Cosmos
