Personable, knowledgeable, entertaining, and has high level material.

Amazing science communicator, up there with deGrasse Tyson and the late Carl Sagan.

Brief history of time, universe in a nutshell, essays explaining black holes, etc are some of his brilliant works. Truly what made me into physics. - Kiteretsunu

Some of his work was what made me determined to study physics. It's truly inspiring. - PositronWildhawk

One of the most underrated writers of today. He knows everything that's in physics, and makes the most complex matters as easy as counting. - PositronWildhawk
