Synopsis: Discusses Heisenberg's personal life, examines his work in such areas as quantum physics, elementary particles, nuclear physics, and the Uncertainty principle, and explores his political life under the Nazi regime during World War II

From the Back Cover:

Werner Heisenberg's genius and his place at the forefront of modern physics are unquestioned. His decision to remain in Germany throughout the Third Reich and his role in Hitler's atomic bomb project are still topics of heated debate. UNCERTAINTY is David Cassidy's compelling portrait of this brilliant, ambitious, and controversial scientist. It is the definitive Heisenberg biography, as well as a striking evocation of the development of quantum physics, the rise of Nazism, and the dawn of the atomic age.

"A fascinating, well-documented biography."--The New York Times Book Review

"A monumental effort. On the controversies about Heisenberg's behavior during the Hitler regime, Cassidy is clear and reasonable."--The New York Review of Books

"An important book. Cassidy has sifted the record and brilliantly detailed Heisenberg's actions."--The Los Angeles Times Book Review

"An excellent work in its comprehensiveness and accuracy, and in its success in recreating the personal drama of one of the greatest and most influential scientists of this century."--The London Times Higher Education Supplement

"David Cassidy has written the definitive biography of a great and tragic physicist. Uncertainty is thorough, judicious, and revealing."--Richard Rhodes, author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb
