The Strangest Man: The Hidden Life of Paul Dirac, Mystic of the Atom

Graham Farmelo

“One of the brightest scientific minds of the contemporary era was Paul Dirac. His prediction of antimatter was one of the greatest achievements in the history of physics, and he was one of Einstein’s most esteemed colleagues. He also contributed to the discovery of quantum mechanics. He was the youngest theorist to ever receive the Physics Nobel Prize in 1933. Like his accomplishments, Dirac’s personality is legendary. The Strangest Man explores the many layers of Dirac’s stunningly creative intellect using previously unknown archives.”
