Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'In writing a charming, light-hearted cameo of his life and times as a scientist, Professor Frisch has revealed more about science than many authors with greater pretensions. This is a book that deserves to be read, and will be enjoyed, by a wide audience.' The Economist

'Despite his modest title, what Frisch 'manages to remember' is quite impressive. He loved to tell stories and his many vignettes of his associates … include nearly every outstanding physicist who worked in nuclear physics.' Science

'This is a happy book, from which the author's personality and his enjoyment of physics, of music, of life, emerges clearly. It is also a portrait of the pre-War world of physics, of days of small numbers and small apparatus, of times when a physicist could think of an ingenious experiment today and set it up tomorrow.' Nature
