Lesser Version of A Brief History of Time
24 April 2018 | by matthewssilverhammerSee all my reviews

Basically just a modern, lesser remake of A Brief History of Time. Not as artistically enriching or hypnotizing, though perhaps more accessible, and still respectably covers the incredible life of an incredible man.
