Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
It was no accident that Danish physicist Niels Bohr, father of quantum mechanics, chose the yin-yang symbol for his coat of arms. In the subatomic realm he found evidence of ``complementarity,'' a unity of seeming opposites, and he strived to apply this principle to the human world, where an element of eternity underlies life's constant flux. Blaedel, a Danish science writer, brings upbut fails to developthe tantalizing connections between Bohr's scientific work and overall outlook. Interwoven with photographs, this adulatory, superficial biography is more interesting in showing how modern physics was born out of the collaborative efforts of Bohr, Einstein, Rutherford, Dirac, Heisenberg et al. Blaedel has almost nothing to say about the months Bohr spent in Los Alamos, speeding the atom bomb's development, but he details Bohr's campaign against its deployment. Anecdotes capture a modest genius who was determined never to say an unkind word about anyone. (June)
Library Journal
Though there is much published biographical data about Bohr in articles and physics histories, there is a surprising dearth of full-scale, book-length biographies in English, and even this volume about the great physicist is a translation from the Danish. Blaedel presents Bohr's life and works for a general audience, discussing at a nonspecialist level his subject's crucial contributions to the establishment of atomic and nuclear physics. However, the author devotes great effort to describing Bohr's personality and his role as mentor (and protector during the Hitler era) of many other distinguished physicists of this century. This is not the definitive biography but is worth purchasing by most academic and public libraries. Jack W. Weigel, Univ . of Michigan Lib., Ann Arbor
