In 1963 Stephen Hawking was given a couple of years to live. In January 2017 he celebrates his seventy-fifth birthday. This biography of the brilliant theoretical physicist includes: his leadership at the London Paralympic Games; the release of the film about his life The Theory of Everything; and his BBC Reith Lectures in 2016.
Kitty Ferguson first became acquainted with Stephen Hawking and his family when she lived in Cambridge in the late 1980s. Around that time she retired from her career as a professional singer and conductor and began writing and lecturing about science and scientists for readers and audiences with little or no scientific background. Her seven books have appeared to critical acclaim all over the world. She and her husband now divide their time between Cambridge and South Carolina.
