Hawking, the theoretical physicist who has revealed the mysteries of the universe to millions of readers, now reveals riveting details of his personal life and intellectual development. In a creative audio twist, Hawking's electronically generated voice begins each chapter and after a few sentences cross-fades to Matthew Brenher's. The narration style parallels Hawking's positive attitude toward life and good humor despite his having contracted ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) at a young age. Brenher's erudite, straightforward reading aptly suits the work as a whole. The skilled Brenher is fully credible as Hawking. As a result, the focus is on the man as a vibrant and youthful researcher, scientist, and educator. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2013]
