"This book is designed to serve as a guide to those who would explore the theories by which the scientist seeks to comprehend the mysterious world of the atom. Nuclear fission and atomic bombs are not the whole of atomic science. Behind them lie extraordinary ideas and stirring events without which our understanding would be meager indeed." --Preface.
