It's a good news to all the readers of Nepal that The book " GRAND DESIGN", written by physicists Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow ,is available in the major book shops in Nepal. I found the mark price for the book as 960 NRs where you will get 10 % discount on almost on every store :-)
The book examines the history of scientific knowledge about the universe. It starts with the Ionian Greeks, who claimed that nature works by laws, and not by the will of the gods. It later presents the work of Nicolaus Copernicus, who advocated the concept that the Earth is not located in the center of the universe. The authors then describe the theory of quantum mechanics using, as an example, the probable movement of an electron around a room. The presentation has been described as easy to understand by some reviewers, but also as sometimes "impenetrable," by others. The central claim of the book is that the theory of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity together help us understand how universes could have formed out of nothing.
