The Best Stephen Hawking lecture ever !

The best ever of all his audio books. This one was recorded using his computerized voice synthesizer so it is the closest to hearing his own mind! I'm glad I made the choice in including this on my audio book list. The original canr only be found on cassette forms.

Thank you for hareng us out

Brilliant

I wish there were more of these lectures. They are analogous to his various books, but there is something special about him lecturing. I would highly recommend

Required listening IMO

Read to you by Stephen Hawking himself. Required listening for everyone, in my humble opinion.

Stephen Hawkins's Ideas and Words are great but..

Would you consider the audio edition of The Cambridge Lectures to be better than the print version?

I would say not. 3 hours of his synthesized voice is difficult to get through.
