Inhaltsangabe

Here for the first time, in rich human, political, and scientific detail, is the complete story of how the bomb was developed, from the turn-of-the-century discovery of the vast energy locked inside the atom to the dropping of the first bombs on Japan.

Few great discoveries have evolved so swiftly - or have been so misunderstood. From the theoretical discussions of nuclear energy to the bright glare of Trinity, there was a span of hardly more than 25 years. What began as merely an interesting speculative problem in physics grew into the Manhattan Project and then into the bomb with frightening rapidity, while scientists known only to their peers - Szilard, Teller, Oppenheimer, Bohr, Meitner, Fermi, Lawrence, and yon Neumann - stepped from their ivory towers into the limelight.

Richard Rhodes takes us on that journey step by step, minute by minute, and gives us the definitive story of man's most awesome discovery and invention. The Making of the Atomic Bomb has been compared in its sweep and importance to William L. Shirer's The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. It is at once a narrative tour de force and a document as powerful as its subject.

Wrong name for this book

This book is called "The making of the atomic bomb" but this is a misnaming. It should be called "The history of the people who built the atomic bomb and of physics in the late 1800s and early 20th century". You really get the whole Picture. Not only do you get a not-so-short biography of all the most important participants of the Manhatten Project, but of everybody involved in the scientific work and development that lead to the Trinity-Test. Leo Szillard, Earnest Rutherford, Nils Bohr, Albert Einstein, Enrico Fermi... you really know this guys afterwards. There where only two things I didnt like, a) the way, the guy read and spoke. It sounded very nasal and not 100% top Quality, and b) at some points I had the feeling, that he´s really mocking the many foreign names. I mean, come on. To pronounce, for example, "Königlich" as "koenegleatch" is just painful.
