Product description

Review

`Superb biography.' --Observer

`A sensitive study of a complicated genius.' --Sunday Times

`[Dirac] is fortunate to have Farmelo as his biographer.' --Guardian

`Dirac should be more widely recognised. Luckily for the reader, he is interesting enough in his own right that doing so is a pleasure.' --The Times Paperback of the Week

`Masterful biography ... a deeply humane portrait.' --Irish Times

`Sympathetic biography ... makes one warm to this complicated man of deep feeling but limited expression.' --Independent on Sunday

`Deserves plaudits for balancing a technical account of Paul Dirac's work with a sensitive story of a peculiar person ... commendable portrait.' --Daily Telegraph

Review

'This is a beautifully written, remarkable biography of a remarkable man. It paints a sensitive portrait of his character, puts into words his science in a way that will capture every reader's attention and memorably conveys Dirac's achievement.'
--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
