What People are Saying About This

Dava Sobel

"This is the story of ultimate alchemy--not the sorcerer's simple fantasy of transmuting lead into gold, but the mighty creation of all elements from none. With excitement and admirable skill, Marcus Chown narrates a complex epic on the grandest scales, peopled by the rogues and geniuses who deciphered the universe."
—Dava Sobel, author of Longitude and Galileo's Daughter
