Format: Hardcover
This compelling book is readable from the start. Not only is it a fascinating portrait of a brilliant man but it also makes science accessible to beginners. It is a human story about a man who was engaging in every way and had so many interests apart from Science. I could not put this book down.

This is quite simply the best biography I have read for many years. What a wonderful man Bernard Lovell must have been. I could not put the book down and was very sad to have finished it. I would recommend it to everyone.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mr. M. J. Reynolds on 19 Dec 2013
Format: Hardcover
Sir Bernard Lovell excelled in so many different ways. As a husband, a father to 5, a scientist, a musician and a horticulturalist. It seems almost unfair to those of us far less gifted in even our main sphere of activity. Yet one can't resent him. He was a traditional English gentleman. He could be a bit impetuous and often naïve. However he was a genuine hero and is immortalised by the Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank, which continues to be at the forefront of modern cosmological research.

This book is the perfect biography for Sir Bernard. It attempts to portray the whole man and not just the famous scientist. For this reason one shouldn't feel that the book is unapproachable. It is aimed at the layman and whilst you may at times get lost in the detail the overarching story remains gripping. I often laughed out loud. It's that good.

Sir Patrick Moore described him as the Isaac Newton of radio astronomy. See if you agree.

A well written and fascinating insight. Such a tribute. It should absorb, inform and entertain a wide audience. A must read.
