I'm looking to pick up a copy of Stephen Hawking's "A Brief History of Time." I was looking around on Amazon.com and found a few different versions... I know that a few of you have read some of his books, so any help here would be great.

I found two versions of the book: this one (#1), and this one (#2).. Are they both the same book, except that the hardback has illustrations?

I'm going to get "The Universe in a Nutshell" after I finish this one. Do you guys have any other recommendations?

Thanks!
:wiggles:

just make sure to get the 2nd edition of brief history as it has added chapters...

ebay has copies for like 3$ if you want to save a few $$ on it

its a really interesting book.

if you mean the two above theres no difference.

if yorue talking about editions, then 3 whole chapters is alot. the first doesnt even have the chapter about wormholes.
