    A Brief History of time by: Stephen Hawking

    I tried the books I found listed under other questions but unfortuantely our dear library does not have any of them....

    Depends on what you mean by valid sources of information. If you are writing a report for English 101, then yes they are great sources of valid information. If you are attempting to publish in an academic journal, I would find the orginal source material that the information is based off of.
