Nice little summary of human and scientific aspects of his life -

Some aspects of his life - Hawking's radiation, understanding black holes, a godless universe boundless in space and time, an infirm body and normal human frailties of behaviour.

I recommend this, even if one or two ideas have been debunked since its publication.

Felicitations to Mr Hawking on this his auspicious day :)
