Beautifully produced. In every lavishly illustrated page, every fascinating aside (did you know, for instance, that there are more atoms in a single glass of water than there are glasses of water in all the earth's oceans?) the book demonstrates the central role of nuclear physics in our exploration of nature.
In this competently written, well-illustrated, and attractively composed book, the history of nuclear physics is explained in a clear but sophisticated manner... They have done a very good job presenting the material; illustrations, figures, and photographs are superior in quality to other available works.
The authors have produced an attractive book... The relaxed, informal style is easy on the reader and the story is told in a way I find appealing.
A valiant attempt to convey the history, subject matter, and applications of subatomic research, and then place them in the context of astronomy... Anyone with an interest in the subject matter will want to read Nucleus several times, and the authors make the experience enjoyable.
