Review:

Intriguing ... There are larger questions here than the life of even this singular man ( Peter Ackroyd, THE TIMES )

Immensely moving... totally gripping to read ( DAILY TELEGRAPH )

Fascinating... What makes this book so rewarding is the way that the authors have blended their account of Hawking's science with that of his life ( SPECTATOR )

This absorbing biography illuminates the extraordinary single-mindedness that has enabled him to triumph over adversity. ( MAIL ON SUNDAY )
