The LibraryLast Friday, my mother and I found ourselves in the library again. Browsing behind the biography section, I had narrowed down my choice to two physics professors.

‘It’s either Stephen Hawking or Brian Cox.’ I whispered.

Science was one of my father’s interests. He would have liked this book.

It’s about the important work of scientists: people like Richard Feynman and Albert Einstein. It explains complex scientific theories, using simple straightforward language. Hawking is a writer of absolute clarity, and has a cheeky sense of humour. If you’ve ever wondered why stuff happens, then this is the book for you.
