"A successful merger of biography and physics." -- TIME "Immensely moving. A totally gripping read." -- The Daily Telegraph "The forces shaping the life of renowned physicist Hawking seem as strangely charged as those he describes in his physics. White and Gribbin ably fill in the spaces between his great leaps of theory." -- Publishers Weekly "Intriguing. There are large questions here than the life of even this singular man." -- The Times (London) "White and Gribbin have produced a definitive biography of arguably the best-known cosmologist in the world. A fascinating story." -- Kirkus Reviews
