About the Author

Linus Pauling (1901-1994), one of the most brilliant and influential chemists of the twentieth century, is often described as one of the most important scientists in history. He was one of only two individuals ever to be awarded Nobel Prizes in different fields (chemistry in 1954 and peace in 1962).

Daisaku Ikeda (1928-) is the President of Soka Gakkai International, a lay Buddhist organisation whose adherents come from over 190 countries throughout the world. He is the author of more than 80 books on Buddhist themes, and received the United Nations Peace Award in 1983.
