PRAISE FOR 'DOOMSDAY MEN' 'Weaving together biography, science and art, Smith has created a compelling history of physics in the 20th century ... Smith's dynamic, riveting narrative reveals details of people, places and events that are rarely covered in textbooks, bringing to life not just scientists like Robert Oppenheimer and Leo Szilard, but the horrors of chemical and atomic warfare ... Captivating and thoroughly referenced.' Publishers Weekly 'Superb ... The research is impressive, but it's his eye for revealing anecdotes and his ability to distil it all into lively prose that makes this a real pleasure to read.' Sunday Business Post 'Always readable and entertaining' Tibor Fischer
