By Stephen Hawking,Ana Guelbenzu

Espléndidamente ilustrada con fotografías poco conocidas, esta autobiografía concisa, ingeniosa y sincera presenta a un Hawking raramente vislumbrado en sus libros anteriores: el alumno inquisitivo cuyos compañeros de clase apodaron «Einstein»; el bromista que una vez hizo una apuesta con un colega sobre los agujeros negros; o el joven padre de familia que se esforzó por hacerse un sitio en el mundo académico.

Escrito con su humildad y humor característicos, Hawking se sincera sobre los desafíos a los que se enfrentó tras ser diagnosticado, con 21 años, de esclerosis lateral amiotrófica. Traza su desarrollo como pensador, explica cómo l. a. perspectiva de una muerte temprana lo empujó hacia numerosos desafíos intelectuales y habla sobre l. a. génesis de su obra maestra, Historia del tiempo, sin duda una de las obras más importantes del siglo xx.
