Summary Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with ALS in early adulthood, but he didn't let that stop him from becoming one of the most influential scientific figures in recent times. Hawking was not only known for his opinions on the universe and his impact on the study of general relativity and black holes, but also for his wit and humor. This biography explores the life of this fascinating man, celebrates his monumental achievements in science, and looks at his role in advocating for other people with disabilities
