No current Talk conversations about this book.
It is said this book wasn't written nor edited by Stephen Hawking. Nevertheless, I liked it. It was a nice reading. ( )
I'm so happy it's over! The information in the book is so over my head that I know I haven't learned anything at all. I like to think I'm fairly intelligent but this novel has me feeling pretty dumb. I guess it's just not my thing.....
Unlike the title suggests, it's not a biography like the movie ... just a series of awesome lectures by Sir Baba Hawking ...
I adore Stephen Hawking. He has a way of taking the very complex and explaining it so anyone can understand. That is a rare gift. Like many, I am fascinated by the existence of our world, galaxy and universe and the ultimate question of why everything is the way it is, or at least the way we perceive it. This series of lectures is informative, humourous and witty. It stretches the brain and makes you smile at the same time. I loved it!
Too difficult for my mediocre mind...
