Review

I don't know much about cosmology or black holes, and what I do know, I learned from Hawking's books. He has the ability to make complex ideas more accessible to the non-scientist. In 127 pages, he summarizes his life with just-the-facts narrative; a beginning and a middle with an eye toward the inevitable end. His stories about academic politics, a peak into his marriages and humor, reveals  Hawking is human just like the rest of us. He ultimately credits ALS, the disease he was diagnosed with at 21 years of age, for giving him a rich intellectual life.
