What I’m Reading Now: I loved Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time. No, I loved the first few chapters. After that, he sprinted ahead of me with his equations. I had the same experience with The Grand Design. But his last book (in both senses) was different. Brief Questions to the Big Questions, written when death was in sight, is a collection of 10 beautifully written short essays on questions such as: Is there a God? How did it all begin? Is there intelligent life out there? And, just for fun, what is inside a black hole? This is a book that I will read more than once.
