Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant theoretical site Store · site eBooks · Science & Math. Editorial Reviews. Review. With a title inspired as much by Douglas Adams' site Store · site eBooks · Science & Math . Stephen Hawking is widely believed to be one of the world's greatest minds: a brilliant theoretical.

His book "A Brief History of Time" introduced millions of people to the wonders of the universe. This short memoir now introduces people to his own life which has not been any less wondrous.

Those who have read the biographies by John Gribbin and Michael White or by Jane Hawking may not find much that is new in here, but the book definitely benefits from Hawking's simple and illuminating writing style and dry sense of humor.

Suffering from an illness like ALS can definitely lead someone to express themselves with economy and clarity. As the title indicates, the book is very short pages and is divided into even shorter chapters. Each chapter is more like a snippet that focuses on one particular topic.

The earlier chapters deal with Hawking's upbringing in London as the son of caring and slightly eccentric parents, his education at Oxford and Cambridge and his initial struggles with ALS Lou Gehrig's Disease. Hawking gives us a good idea of the pioneering research on black holes and the Big Bang which he did with Roger Penrose and others.

There are also anecdotes about other scientists like Richard Feynman and encounters with celebrities like Popes and Presidents. Hawking talks unflinchingly about his disease without a hint of self-pity, and this is a quality that continues to make him so widely admired, sometimes to the point of reverence.

The later chapters deal with his current research on quantum gravity, his various trips to different parts of the world including a few weeks spent every year at Caltech and his two divorces. One revealing part of the book is Hawking's description of the several occasions on which he was on the brink of death; it was only the dedication of his wives, Jane and Elaine, that saved his life. Old and new photographs some showcasing Hawking's bawdy sense of humor enliven the narrative. The book ends on a characteristically optimistic note.

Hawking says that his devastating illness has not held him back from fully living life and he is grateful for his gifts and for the support others have given him. There's some useful advice there for all of us. I read this book twice, first from the library, then my own copy: His life is an amazing story. He was diagnosed with ALS at 21 and given years to live!

He was born January, and is already 73!

Stephen Hawking

He is still working, writing books and traveling. Years ago he lost his ability to use his hands and later lost speech. His brain is a genius living in a body that can't do much but keep him alive. Witty and clever and at times charming, he has received almost every honor available to a scientist by governments, institutions, and churches.

The book is brief and gives some insight into his life-very interesting- has a few chapters on his science--which goes over my head--but fascinating to know what his passion is.

It has lots of great pictures of family and professional colleagues. I am so glad he has lived long enough to contribute so much to his field. And to be around for his three children, of whom he is rightfully proud. Now I am reading his ex-wife's book about their 25 year marriage, on which the movie was based.

Stephen Hawking My Brief History. Bantam Edition. The author, Stephen Hawking, wrote about his life as a brilliant scientist, a husband, a father, and a man living with an incurable disease. Hawking was a theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author who was director of research at the University of Cambridge at the time of his death. He received his education at both Oxford and Cambridge and is the author of numerous books and scientific articles in which he wrote through use of augmentative and alternative communication.

Hawking wrote this memoir himself with use of his AAC technology, an eye tracking system, that he was able to use on his computer to type. Basically, instead of typing with his hands he typed with his eyes. His book was an easy read in my opinion with clear chapters and thought out ideas. I am impressed by his ability to write the majority of this book himself and just through use of his eyes to type.

What is Kobo Super Points?

It could not have been easy for a man using AAC to write an entire book. He must have had a lot of patience, perseverance, and practice with his technology in order to write such great literary works over his lifetime. I was not interested in the majority of the science jargon he spoke of but science and theoretical research is much of how he spent his life I found out.

ALS relates to speech pathology in that individuals with ALS lose the ability to use their voice and have to rely on augmentative and alternative ways to communicate.

He had multiple increases in technology over his lifetime living with ALS and the one he spoke of most was a device called an equalizer which worked with an eye tracking system so he could continue to live his life even without a voice. He would use the eye tracking device to spell or select what he wanted to say and the device was able to say it out loud for him.
