“This biography sheds new light on the life and work of the physicist Ettore Majorana (including contributions that were never published), as well as on the mysterious circumstances surrounding his disappearance in March of 1938. It is widely believed, and Enrico Fermi, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics, is among those who believe that Majorana was a genius on par with Galileo and Newton. In this captivating story, the author, who is himself a leading expert on the work of Majorana, adds to the existing body of literature by providing fresh insights, anecdotes, and personal accounts of Majorana’s contemporaries.”
