A brief history of time by author Stephen Hawkings, has 5 and a half million copies in print, and now we have "a reader's companion" to tell of his life and his work. This volume is much more than a reflection of the film; it is a major expansion of its content.
9 personal interviews are included that were cut from the final film including those from his mother and sister. Colleagues and fellow physicists describe the ides that shaped their work and the concept that Hawking's developed. Stephen Hawkings himself further discusses his bold ideas.

I heartily recommend this reader's companion to all who are fascinated with physics, and Mr. Hawking's. ( )
