A Note from the Publisher
Stephen Hawking was regularly asked for his thoughts on the 'big questions' of the day by scientists, tech entrepreneurs, senior business figures, political leaders and the general public. Stephen maintained an enormous personal archive of his responses, which took the form of speeches, interviews and essays.
This book draws from this personal archive and was in development at the time of his death. It has been completed in collaboration with his academic colleagues, his family and the Stephen Hawking Estate.
A percentage of the royalties will go to charity.
