From the Publisher"Splendidly illuminating... Imprinted with Lightman's scientific wonderment and poetic grace."
—San Francisco Chronicle
“Original. . . . Heartfelt. . . . Illuminating. . . . Lightman writes with his characteristic, unmannered leanness. His style takes something from the scientists who ‘want to hear that call of certain truth, that clear note of a struck bell.’” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"A fine introduction to the excitement and pleasures of science by a scientist who is a humanist in the noblest sense of the word."—Los Angeles Times
"This slender volume mixes insightful scientific biographies with revealing autobiographical accounts and leavens them both with clearly told physics lessons for lay readers." —The Boston Globe
“Wonderfully perceptive. . . . Finely chiseled essays.” —Scientific American
