Product description

Review

"Intelligent and readable... Kitty Ferguson is astonishing in her own right.... She is a careful explicator not only of [Hawkings'] ideas but of the context in which they arose." (Sara Lippincott The Los Angeles Times)

"Ferguson provides engaging and helpful explanations of the physics behind [Hawking's] triumphs." (The Washington Post)

"Fascinating...Ferguson's sympathetic and informed take on an individual who has enriched human knowledge against the odds, is an excellent summing up of (Hawking's) unique and creative contribution to both science and humanity." (George Ellis Nature)

"Ferguson captures the very full life and work of one of the most vibrant minds of our time." (Publishers Weekly)

"Fascinating" (Observer)
