The Man, the Genius, and the Theory of Everything

by Joel Levy



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Well researched, insightful, and accessibly written, Hawking: The Man, the Genius, and the Theory of Everything is a tribute to an astounding life and a celebration of one man’s world-changing work.
On March 14, 2018, the world said goodbye to one of science’s great popularizers. Stephen Hawking was as renowned for his theories on time and space as he was for his unique life story. Undeterred by his debilitating illness, he trained his mind to work in a new way, visualizing problems rather than writing equations, and turning into the leading light in modern science. This fully illustrated biography follows him from an unremarkable upbringing in St Albans to his success as the most celebrated and inspiring scientist of his generation, taking in his family life and scientific breakthroughs. It offers a historical perspective on his achievements, and reveals how he turned a degenerative condition into his calling card and, perhaps, the source of his greatest triumphs.

Joel Levy has written extensively on the history of science. His books include: A Curious History of Mathematics, Really Useful, Poison: A Social History, Newton’s Notebook, and A Bee in a Cathedral.
