Summary
Known both for his groundbreaking work in physics and cosmology as well as for his mischievous sense of humor, Hawking educated millions of readers about the origins of the universe and the nature of black holes, and inspired millions more by defying a terrifying early prognosis of ALS, which originally gave him only two years to live. In this collection of essays he turns his attention to some of the questions he heard repeatedly. Will humanity survive? Should we colonize space? Does God exist? Hawking shares his final thoughts on some of the biggest challenges facing us. -- adapted from jacket
Summary
