About this book
A fascinating study of an extraordinary scientist. Paul Dirac was a leading pioneer in the field of quantum mechanics, and was the youngest theoretician ever to win the Nobel Prize for Physics. He was also pathologically reticent, strangely literal-minded and legendarily unable to communicate or empathize.
Paul Dirac was one of the leading pioneers of the greatest revolution in 20th-century science: quantum mechanics. Based on an archive of family papers, this title celebrates Dirac's massive scientific achievement while drawing a portrait of his life and work.
