Amazing science and a gripping history lesson. A powerful retelling of the events leading up to World War II, the Manhattan Project, the bombing of Japan, and how the atomic age would change the world.

It took a long time for this book to get interesting. The story almost couldn't decide which of the two main subplots was worth the time. Ultimately, both the resolutions seemed flat.

George Carlin
“Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.”
George Carlin

David Foster Wallace
“My whole life I've been a fraud. I'm not exaggerating. Pretty much all I've ever done all the time is try to create a certain impression of me in other people. Mostly to be liked or admired. It's a little more complicated than that, maybe. But when you come right down to it it's to be liked, loved. Admired, approved of, applauded, whatever. You get the idea.”
David Foster Wallace

Neil Gaiman
“Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

Albert Einstein
“I want to know God's thoughts - the rest are mere details.”
Albert Einstein

Isaiah Berlin
“To understand is to perceive patterns.”
Isaiah Berlin
