Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
A definitive portrait of legendary scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer, the "father" of the atomic bomb, discusses his seminal role in the twentieth-century scientific world, as well as his lesser-known roles as family man, supposed communist, and head of Princeton's Institute for Advanced Studies.

Review:
"[R]ich in new revelations...."

New York Times Book Review, 05/15/2005

Review:
"This commanding biography, the result of twenty-five years of research...delivers the most complex portrait of Oppenheimer to date: a brilliant but insecure child prodigy who became a charismatic leader; a polymath who learned Sanskrit just so he could read the Bhagavad Gita; an aesthete who mixed infamously strong Martinis; a one-time fellow-traveller who was almost wilfully naive about politics."

New Yorker, 07/25/2005
