Publisher Comments:

Spanning the years from World War II, when he was a civilian statistician in the operations research section of the Royal Air Force Bomber Command, through his studies with Hans Bethe at Cornell University, his early friendship with Richard Feynman, and his postgraduate work with J. Robert Oppenheimer, Freeman Dyson has composed an autobiography unlike any other. Dyson evocatively conveys the thrill of a deep engagement with the world-be it as scientist, citizen, student, or parent. Detailing a unique career not limited to his groundbreaking work in physics, Dyson discusses his interest in minimizing loss of life in war, in disarmament, and even in thought experiments on the expansion of our frontiers into the galaxies.

Synopsis:

Dyson looks at science not just from a scientist's perspective, but with intent to convince the nonscientist of his sincerity and integrity. Dyson's lyrical prose flows like fine literature as he shares the excitement of discovery, potentials for the future, and the innermost depths and goals of his own heart.

Synopsis:

The classic intellectual autobiography of a great theoretical physicist
