              An icon of the last fifty years, Stephen Hawking seems to encapsulate genius- not since Albert Einstein has a scientific figure held such a position in popular consciousness. In this enthralling memoir, writer and physicist Leonard Mlodinow tells the story of his friend and their... friendship, offering an intimate account of this giant of science. The two met in 2003, when Stephen asked Leonard if he would consider writing a book with him, the follow up to the bestselling A Brief History of Time. As they spent years working on a second book, The Grand Design, they forged a deep connection and Leonard gained a much better understanding of Stephen's daily life and struggles - as well as his compassion and good humour. Together they obsessed over the perfect sentence, debated the physics, and occasionally punted on Cambridge's waterways with champagne and strawberries. In time, Leonard was able to finish Stephen's jokes, chide his sporadic mischief, and learn how the hardships of his illness helped forge that unique perspective on the universe. By weaving together their shared story with a clear-sighted portrayal of Hawking's scientific achievements, Mlodinow creates a beautiful portrait of Stephen Hawking as a brilliant, impish and generous man whose life was not only exceptional but also genuinely inspiring.

              For most of human history, our emotions were thought to be a small set of crude states. Someone was angry, or they were sad; they were fearful or they were happy. It was believed that each only caused specific behaviours - the sad would cry, and the happy would laugh. And there w...as sense that these things called emotions were fundamentally at odds with our reason and logic; that feelings were passionate, unruly and got us in to trouble. But over the last decade, a revolution in science's understanding of the brain has led to a fundamental re-evaluation of the role feelings play in our day-to-day lives. Via maps of the mind, electromagnetic fields, and depression-easing phone apps, acclaimed author and scientist Leonard Mlodinow explores how our emotions are born, the role they play in forming our thoughts and decisions, and how we can harness our feelings to thrive in the modern world. Shot through with wit, lucid insight and extraordinary personal experience, Emotional is at once the definitive guide to the new science of feeling, as well as powerful call to rethink treatment for mental illness, our understanding of personal relationships, and ultimately our view of ourselves.
