Publisher's Summary

Like a story by Victor Hugo as told to Neil Simon, the events leading up to the creation of the atomic bomb involved accidental encounters among larger-than-life figures, especially two who did not get along - but had to. William Lanouette profiles the disciplined Italian physicist Enrico Fermi and the brilliant but lackadaisical Leo Szilard.
