Stephen Hawking (per his Official Site):
“In 1963, Hawking contracted motor neurone disease and was given two years to live. Yet he went on to Cambridge to become a brilliant researcher and Professorial Fellow at Gonville and Caius College. From 1979 to 2009 he held the post of Lucasian Professor at Cambridge, the chair held by Isaac Newton in 1663. Professor Hawking has over a dozen honorary degrees and was awarded the CBE in 1982. He is a fellow of the Royal Society and a member of the US National Academy of Science. Stephen Hawking is regarded as one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists since Einstein.”
Mr. Hawking also wrote children’s books like the one below:
Per Mr. Hawking: “In my latest book for children, “George and the Blue Moon”, George and Annie, set out to solve a mystery set on one of the cosmic waterworlds of space. Is there life under the icy crust? Where did those robots come from and who is controlling them? Meanwhile, my two young heroes win places on a Mars training programme which has a dangerous and unexpected twist. Suddenly, the best friends find themselves fighting for survival in what feels like the Hunger Games set on the red planet. Packed with space facts and essays from leading scientists, it is my most unpredictable thriller so far!”
Stephen Hawking was never expected to live as long as he did, another 50 years, but he had other plans and proved everyone wrong. Mr. Hawking gave the world so much in his lifetime that we are all humbled by him and sad for his passing. Below is a list of his achievements:

What other books you ask… let’s see:
My Brief History
My Brief History recounts Stephen Hawking’s improbable journey, from his post-war London boyhood to his years of international acclaim and celebrity. Illustrated with rarely seen photographs, this concise, witty and candid account introduces readers to the inquisitive schoolboy whose classmates nicknamed him ‘Einstein’; the jokester who once placed a bet with a colleague over the existence of a black hole; and the young husband and father striving to gain a foothold in the world of academia. Read more, or you can order your copy at amazon.com or amazon.co.uk.
The Grand Design
When and how did the universe begin? Why are we here? What is the nature of reality? Is the apparent ‘grand design’ of our universe evidence for a benevolent creator who set things in motion? Or does science offer another explanation? In The Grand Design, the most recent scientific thinking about the mysteries of the universe is presented in language marked by both brilliance and simplicity. Read more, or you can order your copy at amazon.com or amazon.co.uk.
A Brief History of Time
Was there a beginning of time? Could time run backwards? Is the universe infinite or does it have boundaries? These are just some of the questions considered in an internationally acclaimed masterpiece by one of the world’s greatest thinkers. It begins by reviewing the great theories of the cosmos from Newton to Einstein, before delving into the secrets which still lie at the heart of space and time, from the Big Bang to black holes, via spiral galaxies and strong theory. Read more, or you can order your copy at amazon.com or amazon.co.uk.
A Briefer History of Time
Although “briefer,” this book is much more than a mere explanation of Hawking’s earlier work.
A Briefer History of Time both clarifies and expands on the great subjects of the original, and records the latest developments in the field—from string theory to the search for a unified theory of all the forces of physics.
Thirty-seven full-color illustrations enhance the text and make A Briefer History of Time an exhilarating and must-have addition in its own right to the great literature of science and ideas. Read more, or you can order your copy at amazon.com or amazon.co.uk.
Black Holes: The Reith lectures
George and the Blue Moon
“It is said that fact is sometimes stranger than fiction, and nowhere is that more true than in the case of black holes. Black holes are stranger than anything dreamed up by science fiction writers.”
In 2016 Professor Stephen Hawking delivered the BBC Reith Lectures on a subject that has fascinated him for decades – black holes. In these flagship lectures the legendary physicist argues that if we could only understand black holes and how they challenge the very nature of space and time, we could unlock the secrets of the universe.
In my latest book for children, “George and the Blue Moon”, George and Annie, set out to solve a mystery set on one of the cosmic waterworlds of space. Is there life under the icy crust? Where did those robots come from and who is controlling them? Meanwhile, my two young heroes win places on a Mars training programme which has a dangerous and unexpected twist. Suddenly, the best friends find themselves fighting for survival in what feels like the Hunger Games set on the red planet. Packed with space facts and essays from leading scientists, it is my most unpredictable thriller so far!
George and the Unbreakable Code
George and the Big Bang
Stephen and Lucy Hawking’s fourth book about the adventures of George and Annie.
Just as thrilling a book as all the ones before it, George and the Unbreakable Code also delves deeper and covers topics and ideas that the intended readers might not normally think about.
The third book in the series, with a full colour set of photographs, illustrating the wonder of the cosmos, George and the Big Bang, follows George’s adventures in the universe. You can order your copy at amazon.com or amazon.co.uk
George’s Cosmic Treasure Hunt
The second in the series of children’s books written by Stephen and Lucy Hawking. George and Annie, the middle-school cosmologists, return in this sequel to George’s Secret Key to the Universe. You can order your copy at amazon.com or amazon.co.uk.
George’s Secret Key to the Universe
The first in a series of children’s books that melds cosmology and adventure, co-authored by Professor Hawking and his daughter Lucy.
George’s best friend Annie needs help. Her scientist father, Eric, is working on a space project – and it’s all going wrong. A robot has landed on Mars, but is behaving very oddly. And now Annie has discovered something weird on her dad’s super-computer… You can order your copy at amazon.com or amazon.co.uk.
The Universe in a Nutshell
In 200 highly illustrated pages, Hawking is pushing the frontiers of popular physics beyond relativity and quantum theory, past superstring theory and imaginary time, into a dizzying new world of M-theory and branes. Read more, or you can order your copy at amazon.com or amazon.co.uk.
Black Holes and Baby Universes
In his first collection of essays and other pieces – on subjects that range from warmly personal to the wholly scientific- Stephen Hawking is revealed variously as the scientist, the man, the concerned world citizen, and – as always – the rigorous and imaginative thinker. You can order your copy at amazon.com or amazon.co.uk.
On the Shoulders of Giants
On the Shoulders of Giants tells a compelling story, using original papers from Einstein, Copernicus, Galilei, Kepler and Newton. Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking explains how these works changed the course of science, ushering astronomy and physics out of the Middle Ages and into the modern world. Read more, or you can order your copy at amazon.com or amazon.co.uk.
The Large Scale Structure of Space-time
A textbook for Physicists, this 1973 book explores two predictions of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity: first, that the ultimate destiny of many massive stars is to undergo gravitational collapse and to disappear from view, leaving behind a ‘black hole’ in space; and secondly, that there will exist singularities in space-time itself. You can order your copy at amazon.com or amazon.co.uk.
God created the Integers
God Created The Integersis Stephen Hawking’s personal choice of the greatest mathematical works in history. The book includes landmark discoveries spanning 2500 years and representing the work of mathematicians such as Euclid, Georg Cantor, Kurt Godel, Augustin Cauchy, Bernard Riemann and Alan Turing. You can order your copy at amazon.com or amazon.co.uk.
REST IN PEACE Stephen Hawking – you will be missed and honored for ever more.
