I have never read Steven Hawking and I wonder which would be the best? Are they sequential?

Britain Peters Hawking's "A Brief History of Time" is a good place to start; the ideas cover the basics of physical laws and how the universe operates. Hawking states that this book is a follow up to ABHOT, but it can be read by itself (ABHOT recommended though).
Niklas Yes, ''The universe in a nutshell'' is a continuation from ''a brief history of time. Although if you have a decent understanding about physics and/or maths i suggest you to read ''On the shoulder of giants'' and/or ''God created the Integers''. They are large and heavy books, but a true masterpiece.
Muhammad Hassan Qazi It's better to read the Hawking books in sequence so that you can get a better understanding of the concepts and terminologies described by Hawking.
