Renowned scientist Stephen Hawking is releasing a memoir that will provide a warts-and-all insight into his remarkable life.
The book, My Brief History, is the first that Hawking, who suffers from Motor Neuron Disease, has written entirely on his own thanks to the development of new technology.
Hawking is one of the most famous scientists in the world and a wildly successful author. A Brief History of Time has sold more than 10 million copies in 40 languages.
Instead of writing his usual brilliant books about the cosmos, Stephen Hawking is now publishing one about his life
The publishers describe My Brief History as 'his most personal book to date' and said it will deal with how A Brief History of Time came into being, as well as details about his childhood in post-war London, his years at Oxford and Cambridge as his illness developed, his marriages, family and intellectual passions, reports the Independent.
