5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant biography, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Inside The Centre: The Life of J. Robert Oppenheimer (Paperback)
Let me apologise if this sounds like an advertisement, but the book is certainly the best biography I have ever read. Although I understand the physics, and have read other works about Oppenheimer and many of his colleagues, I couldn't put it down. Neither could a friend to whom I leant it. The book reads almost like a pot-boiler, but the research and quality of the writing are both excellent. I was fascinated to discover all sorts of details and anecdotes of which I was unaware, including yet another brilliant line from Dirac. Anyone with an interest in the Manhattan Project, its protagonists and its aftermath, must read this book.

He said he absolutely loved the book. Fortunately he has a back ground knowledge in science, without it he would have found it hard reading. Very Happy Customer
