Stephen Hawking is the world famous physicist with a cameo in The Simpsons on his CV, but outside his academic field his work is little understood. To the public he is a tragic figure, a brilliant scientist and author of the 9 million-copy-selling A Brief History of Time, yet confined to a wheelchair and almost completely paralysed.
J.P. McEvoy and Oscar Zarate's brilliant graphic guide explores Hawking's life, the evolution of his work from his days as a student, and his breathtaking discoveries about where fundamental laws break down or overlap, such as on the edge of a Black Hole or at the origin of the Universe itself.
Introducing is a series of graphic guides that covers every key thinker and topic in philosophy, psychology and science, as well as many others in politics, religion, cultural studies, linguistics and other areas. Feeling clever has never been so much fun.
