Is certainly his best. While I don't agree with all his predictions, I admire his courage and convictions. At least he mentioned the speed of thought which is faster than the speed of light and all too human

If you wish to understand what Hawking was researching and able to understand, he does an excellent job of explaining in ways we will understand. When the book came out, critics stated he did not believe in God, this was taken out of context, read the book, a whole chapter dedicated to this and reference through out the book. Don't walk away saying you disagree with what his conclusions are, come away with an education of this world, not earth, world. This is a must read.

Stephen Hawking's take on the "Big Questions" is worth reading whether a person has an interest in science or not. Hawking reveals how science touches us everyday in ways we take for granted or do not even recognize. He engages the reader as one person directly speaking to another--explaining his view of what our universe is made of, how it began, how it ticks, and what challenges humanity faces. He makes the case for pursuing science and also lays out warnings as we use our new knowledge.

Stephen Hawking's final book "Brief Answers To The Big Questions" is a must read for anyone, but it really caters to fans of science fiction. His latest and final novel is a culmination of some of his most debated topics that he has been researching for decades. No one is more qualified to give their take on the highly debated topics that Hawking covers than himself. These topics include if there is a God, is time travel possible, will humanity survive, and they only get better from there. This is not just a novel filled with boring facts, Hawking put a lot of work into his research and was able to portray his knowledge in a way that made it enjoyable for the everyday person to read about it and fall in love with it. Hawking cracks some jokes here and there to tone down the seriousness of his research, but all in all this novel is out of this world and his research will forever be remembered.

Stephen Hawking, in an autobiographical-esque way, reels the reader in with a masterfully detailed description of his humble beginnings. I'm sure most readers are interested in the man who was the most accomplished cosmologist of his time, revolutionizing how we see the universe. If that was not enough, his perspective as an expert in the field is excellently decomposed into language we all can understand. It is like obtaining special insights to his work in ways a layman would not otherwise come to do so. Please read this book, as it holds incredible educational value - independent of the charming bits and pieces of Dr. Hawking's life woven together.
