Which of these two biographies should I read [see details]?

Asked by Mariah (25863points) January 3rd, 2015

I’m looking to read a biography on Stephen Hawking, and I’m wondering if I should read his own – My Brief History – or his wife’s, Travelling to Infinity – My Life with Stephen? Has anyone here read both, or have info on the quality of either? I will probably just end up reading both…bother.

Thanks!

I haven’t read either (but would like to). I’d read both. His perspective on his life is likely to be quite different to his wife’s. I think it would be very interesting to see how they see the same events from their own unique viewpoint.

I would read both.

If I were to read one, and only one, I would read My Brief History. He obviously knew himself before his wife knew him.
