Passions of A Physicist

Book - 1991
Rate this:
Victor Weisskopf writes here with his familiar rough eloquence and characteristic passion about the events and major themes which have marked his rich and diversely productive life. He writes, of course, about his Viennese youth and physicists of the first rank with whom he has interacted. But also, recurrently, about the musical dimension of his life (he very nearly became a conductor, and remains an enthusiastic pianist, chamber musician and opera buff). And about his efforts (a career in themselves) to contribute to global peace. Weisskopf has pursued with joie de vivre a life which for all its variety has made integrated good sense. He writes perceptively and well, and has produced a book which is an inspiring delight from beginning to end. (NW) Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
