            How Stephen Hawking became the most brilliant man alive When Stephen Hawking died, he was widely recognized as the world's best physicist, and even its smartest person. He was neither. In Hawking Hawking, science journalist Charles Seife explores how Stephen Hawking came to be th...ought of as humanity's greatest genius. Hawking spent his career grappling with deep questions in physics, but his renown didn't rest on his science. He was a master of self-promotion, hosting parties for time travelers, declaring victory over problems he had not solved, and wooing billionaires. Confined to a wheelchair and physically dependent on a cadre of devotees, Hawking still managed to captivate the people around him-and use them for his own purposes. A brilliant expose and powerful biography, Hawking Hawking uncovers the authentic Hawking buried underneath the fake. It is the story of a man whose brilliance in physics was matched by his genius for building his own myth.

            The Secret Life of Kim Dotcom: Spies, Lies and the War for the Internet
             

            The Secret Life of Kim Dotcom: Spies, Lies and the War for the Internet (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Fisher, David

            "From a lonely boy's bedroom in Germany to the penthouses of Hong Kong, from Wellington's Beehive to Washington's corridors of power, from the sedate suburb of Coatesville to the motor racing tracks of Europe, this is the untold story of the charismatic internet tycoon who has dr...iven governments to distraction while winning the affection of internet users worldwide and a large number of the New Zealand public. It recounts not only the high profile political and legal battles but also the behind the scenes domestic life of a man who has more wealth than he can spend in New Zealand and who once escaped to Europe for winter - and took his cars and furniture with him. Written by David Fisher, who has covered the story from the start for the New Zealand Herald , and who won the 2013 Reporter of the Year award in part for his coverage of the story, the book is not an authorised biography but has been written with the full co-operation of Kim Dotcom, who granted the author hours of exclusive interviews. The book also reveals: why Hollywood is obsessed with Dotcom; why he and wife Mona decided to settle in New Zealand; the full story of the dawn raid; what happened to Dotcom in jail; the truth about John Banks and Dotcom; and where The Hobbit comes into it"--Back cover.
