Short Biography of the man who won bread from the air,
This review is from: Master Mind: The Rise and Fall of Fritz Haber, the Nobel Laureate Who Launched the Age of Chemical Warfare (Hardcover)
Fritz Haber could be reduced down into a chemistry textbook footnote. This short biography offers a deeper look into the mind of the major force behind the Haber-Bosch process-that is the process by which hydrogen and nitrogen gas can be fixed into ammonia.
I don't know enough about the history to tell if it's 100% accurate, but the letters and insights seem genuine. As with any book, we only get the facts through the lens the author decides to use. I'm not a huge fan of nonfiction books, but this book held my interest and provided just enough history and chemistry to keep it interesting.
