Rupa to Publish Resilience: The Hawking Way by Virender Kapoor

A must-read for anyone who feels his goals are threatened by tremendous difficulties.


‘I hope to inspire people around the world to look up at the stars and not down at their feet.’

Stephen Hawking faced the gravest odds in life with resilience and an unshakable belief in himself. Diagnosed at the fragile age of twenty-one with a debilitating and life-threatening disease, Hawking established himself as a legend in the field of cosmology. But many wonder how it is possible that a man could achieve immense success in spite of unimaginable suffering.
