I read ‘Brief Answers to Big Question’, the last book of Stephen Hawking. I found this book very good. It focuses on different aspects of life. In this, the answers to questions about the person’s time travel and God have been given in very easy style. This book completely transforms the view of seeing our things.
The first thing that inspires me is his own personality. He was suffering from such a disease, because of which he was confined to a wheelchair, and after that he unraveled the mysteries of universe.
