American Prometheus

American Prometheus is the biography of American scientist Robert Openheimer. It's a wonderful and sad story of a passionate person caught in the machinations of lesser men.

I listened to the 26 hour audio book which is tolerable but not great. As an unabridged audio book it is complete but somewhat disjointed. It was compeling and fascinating none the less.

I can recommend this book to anyone that has the slightest interest or enjoyment of any of the following topics:

  • Science
  • History
  • Politics
  • American Culture
  • The Manhattan Project
  • Psycology
  • Beautiful language
  • The human condition
