Hawking recounts his improbable journey from postwar London boyhood to his years of international acclaim and celebrity. A candid account which introduces readers to a Hawking rarely glimpsed in previous books: the inquisitive schoolboy whose classmates nicknamed him Einstein and the young husband and father struggling to gain a foothold in the world of physics and cosmology. Hawking opens up about the challenges that confronted him following his diagnosis of ALS, and explains how the prospect of an early death urged him onward through numerous intellectual breakthroughs.

A delightful look at a disabled person making the best of himself. He speaks of his accomplishments with some self deprecating humor.
The audio version is the way to "read" this book.

This is a short, easy to understand book about one of the greatest minds in our universe. In this book Mr. Hawking tells us of his life story from his early childhood to present day. He does speak at some length about black holes, the big bang, time travel, etc.

I would recommend the book for ages 12 and up.
