Few scientists are as recognizable as Stephen Hawking.

Despite having Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's Disease)-an affliction that many experts expected to have killed him decades ago-Hawking remains a vital and influential voice in the scientific community.

One of the leading cosmologists studying the celestial phenomenon known as black holes, Hawking has also led the way in popularizing science with his best-selling work A Brief History of Time.

This biography of Hawking, written by a physicist, provides an accessible introduction to the life and work of an inspirational figure.
