'If you wanted to understand Stephen Hawking but couldn't face the maths, this is the book for you.' - Dr Althea Wilkinson, Jodrell Bank
Stephen Hawking kept breaking rules. Given two years to live, he managed another 54. He wrote about quantum cosmology - and sold 20 million books. He could not speak, yet the world recognized his voice.
Hutchings and Wilkinson shine light on his extraordinary ideas. The result is a story of black holes, origins, many universes, and Big Questions.
