But now, Hargittai's book was for me a rare possibility to learn an unknown facts about the reality these scientists lived and worked; for me, it is also a rare intellectual and personal odyssey into these days, helping to understand an outstanding importance of these discoveries in our days.
The great advantage of this book is also an ability to explain a hard scientific concepts in very accessible way; still, it is very deep. In this way, it is very accessible not only for someone who scientifically trained, but for everyone who is intellectually curious.
I enjoyed reading it. For the fine details, it helps if you have education in the natural sciences, but you do not have to be a chemist or physicist to appreciate the stories.
