"...heartily recommended as being as fine an example as one can hope to find of expository writing on science. The profiles of the giants of modern science, not to mention the wonderful accounts of earlier titans of physics, certainly make the book a best-buy on the popular science shelf." -NEW SCIENTIST
"an eclectic collection of essays...a well written work, as one expect(s) from a writer of Bernsteins caliber; recommended..." -LIBRARY JOURNAL

From the Back Cover:

One of America's best-known essayists on science, physicist Jeremy Bernstein, here presents his latest collection of work. Drawn from over ten years of writing for magazines such as The Atlantic, The New York Review of Books, The New Yorker, and Scientific American, these essays provide illuminating accounts of the lives of some of this century's most important scientists and the value of their work. Bernstein's fans who remember these pieces from their original publication will be pleased to see that many that had to be cut - sometimes drastically - to fit magazine space requirements are here restored to their original length. Bernstein has added introductions and postscripts to many essays as well. In all, this collection contains a great deal of new and unpublished material. An added bonus is Bernstein's four pieces of published fiction - three of which are hilarious send-ups of academic and sexual politics at a small and (we hope) imaginary college.

About the Author:

Jeremy Bernstein is an adjunct professor at Rockefeller University and is on the board of trustees on at the Aspen Center for Physics, and has taught courses and lectured at many universities, including Princeton University and Tribhuvan University in Katmandu, Nepal. He was a staff writer for The New Yorker for over 30 years. Bernstein won numerous awards for his writing and published a wide range of technical, popular science and mouton travel books. He was born in Rochester, New York in 1929, took all three degrees at Harvard and currently splits his time between New York City and Aspen, Colorado.
