Physicist and polymath, as familiar with Hindu scriptures as he was with quantum mechanics, J. Robert Oppenheimer - director of the Manhattan Project that developed the atomic bomb - was the most famous scientist of his generation. In their meticulous and riveting biography, Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin reveal a brilliant, ambitious, complex and flawed man, profoundly involved with some of the momentous events of the twentieth century.

Recensioner i media

"'Quite simply, a giant among biographies.' Robin McKie, Observer 'Reads like a thriller, gripping and terrifying by turns... No more absorbing biography will, I predict, come out this year, nor, given the dangers we face, a more important one.' John Carey, Sunday Times 'All previous works on the topic are, in the nicest possible sense, blown out of the sky by a book which is, in both the proper and metaphorical meanings, monumental.' Mark Lawson, Esquire 'No previous biography has...matched the power, range and lucidity of Martin Sherwin and Kai Bird's Life... Riveting.' Kenan Malik, Sunday Telegraph 'Dazzling... Rich in incident and enigma... It wears its scholarship lightly and whisks the reader through the story at thriller-like page.' Brian Cathcart, New Statesman 'Magisterial.' Robin McKie, Observer"
