Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

If you've read any of Richard Feynman's wonderful autobiographies you may think that a biography of Feynman would be a waste of your time. Wrong! Gleick's Genius is a masterpiece of scientific biography--and an inspiration to anyone in pursuit of their own fulfillment as a person of genius. Deservedly nominated for a National Book Award, underservedly passed over by the committee in the face of tough competition, and very deservedly a book that you must read.

Review

[A] rare, jewel-like biography... terrifically readable. It achieves an almost perfect balance between the physicist's work and his life... Gleick [is a] consummate craftsman. -- Washington Post Book World
