Authoritative, complete and well-researched biography of Chaim Weizmann. Occasionally pedestrian in the writing, rather dry and academic, so although all the facts are there, Weizmann never comes alive as a person. I was also irritated by far too many reconstructed conversations. Nevertheless an important work of scholarship and essential reading for anyone interested in Weizmann himself and the history of Israel.
