Summary
  • "This series will tell the amazing stories of inspiring people who have made a difference and changed the world, despite the odds stacked against them. They will detail the characters' humble origins, the obstacles standing in their way that had to be overcome, and discuss the successes and achievements for which they are lauded today. This book tells the story of Stephen Hawking, the brilliant scientist who made great contributions to the study of the origin of the universe despite suffering from motor neuron disease for most of his life."--
  • Stephen Hawking is one of the greatest scientists and thinkers of our time, and is famous around the world because he writes and talks about cosmology - the science of the universe - in a way that people can understand. He has a terrible disease called ALS, and today he can only move and speak with the help of machines. But this has not stopped him working to try and understand our world better
