“The stark but rich simplicity of the epitaph on Boltzmann’s tomb provides the link for the steps in Bill Green’s engaging journey in search of science. This is a personal journey, rich in erudite and felicitously expressed sensitive observation and an utter joy to read. Go on this journey with him, and encounter the human side of science and its rewards: you too will be rewarded.”

Peter Atkins, author of Four Laws That Drive the Universe and Galileo’s Finger: The Ten Great Ideas of Science
