bloody physicist I did not really like this book because I don t really find his life fascinating. This biography shows the life of Stephen Hawking from the beginning to close to the end This details some important events and his research This book dives into his research very well and leaves out very few detail It spend so much time on that, it would need to not much feeling and attention put into his actual life It is still there, it could just be done better If you wanted to know about Hawking, especially is findings, I would recommend this If you are looking for details into his life or of an emotional input, you could probably look for something else. I thought this was a pretty good book It helped me understand Stephen Hawking s life, along with some of his other works I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in astrophysics cosmology or an interest in Stephen Hawking It is an easier read than Hawking s books, which makes it appealing to people who don t like to read really technical stuff I liked that it is an easy read, but I didn t really like that it focused a bit on Hawking s work than on his life, which made it a bit hard to use as a biography. There are many biographies about Professor Hawking This one, however, is actually special Why Dr Kristin Larsen has managed to lightly dance perhaps in a Brownian motion type of way between personal and scientific, and popular and intellectual, planes While many biographies of Professor Hawking detail his scientific theories and accomplishments, Larsen has uniquely, in my experience, been able to interweave Hawking s life into the world s larger cultural context At the same time, while quite readable by the average person, I think, this is not a pop version of Hawking s life as chapter titles including Physics and Metaphysics The No Boundary Proposal, and Plays, P Branes, and Polls Private Lives and Public Pronouncements show.Larsen has not stopped with Hawking himself, but has been able to include interesting details of Hawking s children, especially as those children themselves have begun to assert themselves on their own stages, quite apart from their father.In short Stephen Hawking A Biography may be, at a high level, one of the most readable and culturally comprehensive biographies of the man Read it. Simple explanation of the studies pursued by Hawking was one of the cornerstones of the book for me This 165 page biography by Kristine Larsen about Stephen Hawking takes readers on a journey throughout his life from the very beginning to the present day Unlike many other biographies this one is told like a story it carefully combines both his personal and professional life throughout the biography By doing this the readers are able to step into the shoes of Hawking It discusses the development of his ALS, the course of his romantic life, his habits in his early education as well as an overview of all his notable discoveries and awards This biography made me realize that Hawking was not the man I thought he was From his appearance he seems like a fragile and shy person, but what I got out of the biography is that he was a very stubborn and unafraid His marital life was a big surprise to me Who knew a physicist like himself would fall in love with his nurse and abandon his wife and children for her Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the biography and felt that it gave a full and complete overview of his life.
