Review

'The best book available today on the life and work of Schrödinger.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

'It is an attempt to analyze a soul, and in that respect it surpasses even The Double Helix by James Watson in its examination of the most visceral drives of a great scientist.' The New York Times Book Review

'A bestseller among scientific biographies.' Science

From the Back Cover

This book is about Erwin Schrodinger who was a brilliant and charming Austrian, one of the greatest scientists of the twentieth century, and a man with a passionate interest in people and ideas.
