As an Oxford student, Stephen Hawking never expected that people across the world would know his name, or that his hobby of stargazing would lead him to be one of the world's greatest scientists. Stephen Hawking made cosmology, or the study of the universe, accessible to everyone. Hawking is best known for writing A Brief History of Time, which explained cosmology in non-scientific terms so that non-scientists could understand it.

He was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis at the age of twenty-one, but didn't let that stop him from receiving a graduate degree from Cambridge and going on to be an expert in the scientific origin of the universe and black holes. He was expected to die in 1965 at the age of twenty-three, but went on to live a full life, dying in 2018 at seventy-six years old.

The newly revise edtion of All About Stephen Hawking includes information about Hawking's death, its effect on those around him, and his lasting scientific legacy. It is designed to interest middle-grade readers ages nine to fourteen in science, engineering, technology, and math. After all, we wouldn't be mathematically exploring black holes without him! Complete with two timelines, a glossary, quotes, an index and expertly crafted illustrations, All About Stephen Hawking is perfect for any student's library. A professionally-developed teacher's guide is available at blueriverpressbooks.com/all-about-teachers-guides/.

Chris Edwards, Ed. D., has had his scholarship and teaching methodology published in journals produced by both the National Council for History Education and the National Council for Social Studies. He is a frequent contributor on topics of law, logic, and theoretical physics to the science and philosophy journals Skeptic and Free Inquiry. He proudly teaches world history and Advanced Placement world history at a public high school in Indiana.
