As a Nobel Prize winning physicist and contributor to the Manhattan Project, Eugene Wigner led a remarkable life, and this biography attests to that fact. It is a comprehensive portrait of his life from childhood until the present that weaves fact with reminiscences and amusing anecdotes. In addition to describing growing up in the midst of Hungarian political turmoil, experiencing Berlin in the 1930s, and working on the atomic bomb, it also depicts Wigner’s relationships with notable men including Einstein, Szilard, von Neumann, and Teller.
