Not since Einstein has a scientific figure held such iconic status, but who was the man behind the public image? Leonard Mlodinow tells the story of his friend and collaborator, Stephen Hawking and how they obsessed over the perfect sentence, debated physics, and punted on Cambridge’s waterways. Mlodinow offers a clear-sighted portrayal of Hawking’s scientific achievements, and a portrait of a brilliant, impish, generous man of singular talent.
