    Feb 10, 2020 rated it it was amazing
    This was such an amazing tribute to a man that made such an impact in the study of physics. Since this was written by a friend, there was a lot of information the public didn’t know. The perfectionism in getting every minute detail just right by Mr. Hawking is a characteristic many of us can adapt. I learned so much about this man that I hadn’t read before. I highly recommend this one!
