Editorial Reviews

Review

"'Bizony brings an enthusiasm to his subject that elevates it to high drama, and shows how after even after two centuries we are still being confronted with bizarre discoveries and questions in this brand of science.' Good Book Guide 'Bizony's insightful, compelling book chronicles our quest to understand the atom through the personalities of those who looked furthest into its abyss - a human drama wrought with frustration, love, guilt and genius.' New Scientist"

About the Author

Piers Bizony is a science journalist and space historian who writes for magazines such as Focus and Wired as well as the BBC's Sky at Night magazine. His last book, The Man Who Ran the Moon, was described as a 'firebrand of a book' by Publisher's Weekly.
