About the Author

Victor F. Weisskopf was Institute Professor Emeritus and Professor of Physics Emeritus at MIT.


"Weisskopf's aim is merely to sow the seed--wonder, the seed of knowledge--and he is eminently successful. This is a book for the nonscientific layman and for the high-school pupil of age fifteen or sixteen. It should be read before college. Let the physics major read it again...or the graduate student in another science even later still, they will also find it rewarding." -- Physics Today "Weisskopf reviews, in depth, though with amazing succinctness and lucidity, the basic concepts of force, the nature of electricity, light, the atom, quanta, the nucleus, wave mechanics, complementarity, the chemical bond, mesons, and fields; next he works up to the molecules of living systems, protein, nucleic acids, DNA, RNA, and the origin of life and terminates with evolution and the emergence of man. A vast expanse of man's recent achievements is briefly scanned here, but the concepts are so clearly stated and so logically tied together that even the reader who is fully enlightened in these fields will enjoy the perspective and integration which the author achieves." -- Science
