Strange Beauty : Murray Gell-Mann and the Revolution in Twentieth-century Physics Paperback
No scientist has done more to shape our understanding of the universe than Murray Gell-Mann, the Nobel Prize-winner considered by many colleagues to be the most brilliant physicist of his generation.
His discovery of the quark and the Eightfold Way were cornerstones for all that followed in particle physics, the effort to understand the very stuff of creation.
In this, the first biography of Gell-Mann, George Johnson tells the story of a remarkable life.
