Nanci Svensson | 2 comments Can't find a group about books about Los alamos & Oppenheimer, do you know of one? I need new reading material

Laurence | 7 comments Don't know about a group, but have you read "Dark Sun" or maybe "Genious" which is Richard Feynman's bio. He worked at Los Alamos on the bomb.

Nanci Svensson | 2 comments I've read all of gleick's and Rhodes work. Rhodes is in a league I of his own though, he's phenomenal.... I liked Gleick's Feynman book but some of his other stuff hasn't interested me as much (oddly neither chaos or information theory interests me)....
