4.0 von 5 Sternen Personal account of Quantum Theory from one who participated, 9. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Thirty Years That Shook Physics: The Story of Quantum Theory (Taschenbuch)
I first read this back in high school. I loved it. Yeah, I'm a science geek. This book is not only a wonderful account of the history and science of quantum theory (from 1900 through 1930), but of Dr. Gamow's personal and professional associations with those who made it all happen. The black and white photographs are an added bonus. My favorite is of Neils Bohr out for a motorcycle ride with his wife.
Please note that my review is based on the Doubleday/Anchor version from 1966. Does the later version contain the photographs? I don't know.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gamow was the father of so many of us, 13. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Thirty Years That Shook Physics: The Story of Quantum Theory (Taschenbuch)
It made me smile and misty eyed to see how Gamow has inspired so many of us. I gave my nephew a copy of this book, it is the greatest gift I could think to give him.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Thirty Years That Shook Physics: The Story of Quantum Theory (Taschenbuch)
A reprinted Dover edition of a lovely set of biographies of the physicists of the Golden Period, from the pen of George Gamow. The original 1966 edition has been out of print for a number of years. This 1985 edition is beautifully reproduced, and it includes fascinating pictures, sketches, and poems, done by Gamow himself. He was born in Odessa, in what was then Russia, --before the Soviet Union. The story of his escape to the West is straight out of a thriller. Only it is real! Later in the US, Gamow was referred to by a journalist,--- some time during the Cold War, as "the only scientist in America with a real sense of humor". With his lovely books, we have now all come to experience how Gamow can take the most technical stuff and make it simple. Fun too! The book:--Intellectual treats, whimsy, but deep. It contains penetrating and personal biographies of Niels Bohr, Paul Ehrenfest, Wolfgang Pauli, Werner Heisenberg, Albert Einstein, and recollections from the conferences in the 1930ties in Copenhagen, Brussels, and in the Solvay Institute. Illustrated with lovely drawings by Gamow himself. A book with pictures and conversations! Much of it can be understood by a child, and other parts might require a little concentration. All of it is great fun. The author Gamow started in nuclear physics, during the Golden Age of Physics, worked with Niels Bohr, then later in the US, on the Manhattan Project during WWII, and after the war, he was professor in Boulder Colorado. He has a building on campus named after him! The books he wrote are pearls, and they have been equally popular with my parent's generation as with mine. Luckely some have been reprinted! Other Gamow titles: Biography of Physics, Atomic Energy [dedicated to the hope of lasting peace], Physics of the Strapless Evning Gown,...We are lucky that Dover has reprinted some of them. Gamow's list of scientific accomplishments includes a 1948 landmark paper on the origin of chemical elements, the Big Bang model, and later work with F. Crick on DNA and genetic coding.-- Do more Gamow editions, Dover!
