Dyson’s new collection includes reminiscences, lucid explanations of scientific concepts, and an engagingly imaginative approach to the triumphs, blunders, mysteries, and dreams of scientific inquiry into the natural world.
Now in paperback. Dyson profiles scientists—Newton Einstein, Teller, Feynman—whose independent thought allowed them to make great conceptual leaps. Dyson also puts forth some heterodox ideas of his own on topics like space colonization and the paranormal, living up to his reputation as “one of the world’s most original minds.”—Times (London)
