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.

I listened to this audiobook, and it was really enjoyable. It is quite short, but it was a perfect small slice of Hawking's past. The only bit where I drifted was near the end when the discussion of space time loops left me FAR behind. Great if you'd like a quick and interesting listen, with a bit of self-deprecating humor.

A very interesting view into the life of a genius who overcame a huge physical disability and is an acclaimed cosmologist.
I enjoyed the reader which jumped from a regular to a robotic voice during the reading.
