I've been very busy lately, hence a slow down in posting, but in the meantime I wanted to recommend a book. The Pope of Physics is the recent biography of Enrico Fermi from
While it's not necessarily as page-turning as The Making of the Atomic Bomb, it's a very interesting biography that offers insights into this brilliant yet emotionally reserved person. It's a great addition to the bookshelf. For reference, other biographies that I suggest are True Genius: The Life and Science of John Bardeen, and the more technical works No Time to be Brief: A Scientific Biography of Wolfgang Pauli and Subtle is the Lord: The Science and Life of Albert Einstein.
