Stephen Hawking was arguably the most recognizable scientist of our time, but not many people are as familiar with his fascinating backstory. As he did in Feynman (2011), Ottaviani spends a lot of time going over the history of physics and the various discoveries made along the way, and while that background is essential to understanding Hawking's work and impact on science, it can occasionally overshadow the complicated and challenging life story some readers might be after. In his full-color, fine-lined artwork that balances appealingly between angularly cartoonish and realistic depiction, Myrick does an admirable job of illustrating the various complicated concepts and theories that Hawking envisioned, as well as of attempting to visualize the many scientific conversations and debates that Hawking had with his colleagues and inside his own mind. While scientific concepts may wash over some people, the touching portrayals of Hawking with his family and his struggles dealing with his degenerative condition will certainly stay. A well-rounded study of physics and one of its brightest stars. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
