From his early days at the St Albans School and Oxford, Stephen Hawking’s brilliance and good humor were obvious to everyone he met.
At twenty-one he was diagnosed with ALS, a degenerative neuromuscular disease. Though the disease weakened his muscles and limited his ability to move and speak, it did not limit his mind. He went on to do groundbreaking work in cosmology and theoretical physics and became a pop-culture icon and an outspoken advocate for disability rights.
In Hawking, New York Times–bestselling graphic novelists Jim Ottaviani and Leland Myrick deliver a gripping biography of Stephen Hawking, one of the most important scientists of our time.
