A dense but interesting read--took me a while to get through it. Interesting background on the author's life.

Could be good for young scientists, especially if they're interested in the topic. The author includes the social and family part of his life in tandem with his milestone discoveries, much is interwoven, so it made the subject more memorable.

Chapter after chapter of the author's life, like how he grew up, how he met his wife, how he met other scientists...waste of time.
