    " I started listening to this book, then something went awry with the CDs so I set it aside until I could download it to my MP3. Have to get back to it. It's HUGE and well-researched and really interesting. "

    " Great book offering a window not only into a brilliant mind but also into a pivotal time in history. "

    " As with many biographies a fascinating insight into a part of history. As a mainly American history it covers science, WWI, WWII, Communism, McCarthyism, the development of the bomb, amongst many others. I did find it a little long and repetitive in sections but I'm glad I stuck with it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Alasdair | 2/6/2011

    " This was a fascinating read - a true tragedy of Lear proportions. The man himself was complex and clearly a towering figure of the 20th century and his story is captured and told brilliantly. "
