This well organized and thoughtful biography of an astonishing scientific figure is fantastic. I picked it up and could not put it down. The book has many short articles arranged in a dictionary format. It reads well, is informative and superbly written. The articles have see also information that creates a cohesive linking of topics. This work is well indexed and provides a selected bibliography for further reading. Another great work by Karen C. Fox!
