Inhaltsangabe: The authors tell the story of Hawking's life and work, his childhood and early scientific promise at school, his days at Oxford, his marriage and the early signs of disease, through to his professorship at Cambridge, the success of "A Brief History of Time" and the break-up of his marriage.
Intriguing ... There are larger questions here than the life of even this singular man ( Peter Ackroyd, THE TIMES)
Immensely moving... totally gripping to read ( DAILY TELEGRAPH)
Fascinating... What makes this book so rewarding is the way that the authors have blended their account of Hawking's science with that of his life ( SPECTATOR)
This absorbing biography illuminates the extraordinary single-mindedness that has enabled him to triumph over adversity. ( MAIL ON SUNDAY)

We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
