Review: J. Robert Oppenheimer: Shatterer of Worlds

User Review  - Goodreads

Amazon, third party, 2009-08-10. *sigh* i need a new hero, or someone needs to write a good book about von neumann, or maybe i should do that hrmmm. I only bought this because it was available for $0.94 + shipping, but I'll eventually want to procrastinate badly enough to pick it up. Read full review
