    The Greatest Strangest Man

    This is the best biography I have ever had the privilege to read, I have heard on occasion of Paul Dirac but never imagined how brilliant the man was? Graham Farmilo does an excellent job of giving us a brilliant overview of Dirac's life from his humble beginnings in Bristol to his Cambridge education and subsequent Nobel prize in physics. The brilliant man was way ahead of his time, too clever by far. I was fascinated with his strange behaviour and often had a chuckle at some of his blunt remarks to others. Dirac was one of a number of great physicists who gave us the beginnings of quantum mechanics during the first few decades of the 20th century, his friendships with Kapitza, Bohr, Schrodinger, Heisenberg and many others are well documented here. I can not recommend this book enough, Dirac was the strangest man yes but more importantly he was a quantum genius and one of Britain's greatest ever scientist without a doubt.
