He died on 14 March, 2018.
Stephen Hawking [has] a brain of enviable vastness, seeing and
understanding things that lie way beyond most of us... His modesty
Hawking writes movingly... we hear his voice radiating directly from the black hole of his motor neuron disease, without the amplification and elaboration supplied by the co-authors with whom he wrote his last few books
A concise, gleaming portrait
Powerful... [his] brevity makes for a bold picture
Read it for the personal nuggets... But above all, it's worth reading for its message of hope
