Physicist s Bio

Extremely helpful book on the lives and contributions of some very important Atomic Physicists. Each chapter can be read independently and yet get a good grasp of the subjects matter - although the book is chronologicaly written.
It makes me appreaciate more of the physics that I learned in college on how, why, when and where these individuals came up with 'their' theories - and who influenced them.
It's just a great book!
