Publisher Comments:

Studying the man considered to be the most brilliant theoretical physicist since Albert Einstein, this biography of Stephen Hawking brings readers closer to one of the greatest living scientific geniuses. While obviously a brilliant scientific mind, Hawking has also succeeded in revealing some of the most complex topics to ordinary minds through his books and is a vocal campaigner for social and political issues, including the rights of disabled people. Written in an accessible language, this brief biography provides an introduction to this exceptional genius through three-minute bits of text that are both manageable and riveting.
