Book Synopsis

Stephen Hawking is one of the most remarkable figures of our age--bestselling author of A Brief History of Time, celebrated theoretical physicist, and an inspiration as he exhibits grace, dignity, and courage while coping with devastating disability. With race access to Hawking, including childhood photos and in-depth research, award-winning author Kitty Ferguson has created a rich and comprehensive picture of Hawking's life: his childhood; the heartbreaking ALS diagnosis when he was a first-year graduate student; his long personal battle for survival in pursuit of a scientific understanding of the universe; and his rise to international fame. Ferguson uses her gift for translating the language of theoretical physics into the language of the rest of us to make Hawking's scientific work accessible. Stephen Hawking is an insightful, absorbing, and definitive account of an extraordinary life and a brilliant mind.

    How much you may enjoy this book will depend largely on how much you are willing to indulge the author's lessons on physics at the cost of a narrative dedicated to the biography of Mr. Hawking. While it is true that some pages may be spent on the physics in order to better appreciate the physicist, this reviewer would have wished for a great deal more about the man. There are long sections of the book where Mr. Hawkins no longer appears to be the subject; instead he seems to have been demoted merely to an implied context ( or pretext ). Those sections that are about Mr. Hawkins are quite interesting, even if the writing is somewhat unremarkable.
