KIRKUS REVIEW

Enrico Fermi's biography by his wife is a polished, lively piece on the man who won the Nobel Prize for work in nuclear physics and who helped to make the atom bomb. Covering their life together through three decades and two continents, there are intimate pictures of the early teaching days in Rome in an increasingly fascistic Italy, of other scientists who were their friends and of the years at Columbia, Chicago and Los Alamos. Valuable.
