A Brief History of Time: An Interactive Adventure with Stephen W. Hawking
A Brief History of Time: An Interactive Adventure with Stephen W. Hawking(Creative Labs, Inc.) is a CD-ROM based on Hawking’s book that works wonderfully as a multimedia title. No question of light content here; the text is so dense that it could be forbidding without Hawking as a guide. You can stick with the text or choose to explore by way of animations, videos, and illustrations which serve both to explain and expand the text. Excerpts of the film made from the book, as well as a short biographical section, are included. But it is Hawking himself, brilliant and often quite funny, who makes this disc work so well. It’s a title that you will want (and need) to go back to many times.
