I'm really hoping this is open to the public.  Is anyone in the general vicinity?  This is only about 35 minutes away from my day job, and I'm really hoping that I can make it.

Anyone here had the chance to see him speak on this topic (or any other for that matter)?

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.

You should read A Brief History of Time.

I read it when I was a librarian.

It's amazing. And it will provide enjoyable headaches.

I read this one when I was 13 or 14 years old and loved it.  He definitely has a knack for explaining incredibly complex concepts to simpletons like myself.  I concur with Hatake Stephen Hawking's "A Brief History of Time" was fantastic as well.

The bit about the elderly lady and the Turtles was hilarious :)

I own the illustrated copy; when I first read it I read the 1988 press.

The illustrations make it all the more interesting.

I actually own that and The Universe In A Nutshell in a split-book.
