Hawking purists may not agree, however I think the touch of Mlodinow certainly augments the accessibility of this book (comparing BHT, UNS); bringing an overarching understanding of physics even closer to the masses (pun intended).
I read this book during a period of my life where I felt rather afflicted by my over exposure to the early 2000's militant Atheistic jaunt that relied heavily on the malefic, evil and perverse aspects of religion, making the freedom and liberty that Godlessness and critical though can provide to humanity subsidiary. However engaging this (hate) is the bleakness was never-the-less exhausting for me. I remember the essence of this book renewed my enthusiasm for enquiry and perhaps sparked an understanding of what I suppose Dawkins attempts to convey quoting Adam's at the start of God Delusion with his position regarding appreciating gardens without fairies at the bottom of them.
