Review quote

thoughtful and fascinating. * THE LITERARY REVIEW * Gleick's narrative, consistently measured and elegant is a formidable work of scientific biography. * NEW STATESMEN * I came away from Genius feeling that I knew a lot more about Feynman and his play in 20th century science. * SUNDAY TIMES * the book is a moving, beautifully written literate and perceptive account of Feynman's life. * NATURE *
