      He’s done some interesting research that is certainly well respected. I think his role in communicating complicated physics ideas to the public has been his biggest achievement. 🙂

      The man is a quite brilliant scientist and a very eloquent communicator – whether or not you agree with all of his views, his books make good reading.

      I think he is an incredible and inspirational man who has faught disease for most of his life, and despite this has had a determined and influencial career using a clearly brilliant mind. I just don’t agree with what he has to say!
