Review: Brighter than a Thousand Suns: A Personal History of the Atomic Scientists

User Review  - Mandeep Singh - Goodreads

A wonderful read. The book was researched and written at the time most the scientists who contributed to the Manhattan Project were still alive. The account of the events that led up to it is very personal and engaging. Read full review
