Robert Oppenheimer was a puzzle to everyone. The nuclear physicist most responsible for the creation of the atomic bomb, he was a genius both scientifically and otherwise.

His standards were impossibly high. He read widely in many languages, wrote poetry, and did superb science. Yet in Jeremy Bernstein's intensely interesting biographical memoir, Oppenheimer emerges as a man unsure of his. Close appears to accept this high-minded line at face value, although elsewhere he also endorses the view that Fuchs was a committed, lifelong communist.

But Peierls was a physicist of particular integrity who, at the very outset of his atomic research, saw that mankind could only survive in the nuclear age if it pursued a doctrine of deterrence. The physics in this book are way above me and I found taking notes helped.

I felt like I almost understood. The illustrations are helpful. This little gem is a joy to touch, it takes me home again. I will read this book more than twice. The book arrived promptly and in good condition, as has every used book I've purchased through Amazon s: 4.

In Jeremy Bernstein's intensely interesting biographical memoir, Oppenheimer emerges as a man unsure of his identity and captive to an element of self-destructiveness in his makeup.
