This is the perfect audio book.
Eloquently written chapters followed by the clever answers spoken my Hawking himself, this book is a masterpiece. Listening to it, I couldn't take my headphones out. The narrator was captivating, and the afterword at the end had me nearly in tears. I have recommended it to everyone that I've spoken to since. Breathtaking.
