The man who changed the understanding of chemistry This is a highly readable and enjoyable biography of the greatest chemist of the 20th century. Hager goes into great detail about both Pauling’s life and science but his clear writing style never loses the reader’s interest. Unlike some biographers of scientists, Hager has a way of seeing the issues from the reader’s perspective. The science is presented in a way that is understandable by those without any background in chemistry except perhaps knowing something about the periodic table…

Great Read.Remarkable man! So far, one of my favorite books.I am a big fan of Linus since learning about the Pauli exclusion principle in Chem 101.Two things can not be at the same place, at the same time.Simple principle with universal applicability.That’s why when you change lanes on the high way, make sure there’s no other car in your intended space or you both exclude each other via an elastic collision/crash.Thanks seller for availing this masterpiece .Pauli faced poverty growing up due to the death of his father…
