The name of Albert Einstein is a byword for scientific genius, yet Heisenberg maintained that Niels Bohr – who feared the 'end of physics' if Einstein's ideas proved correct – had a greater influence. The decades-long conversation between these two sparring partners forms the framework of Kumar's history of the quantum revolution, in which he sets clear explanations of the often mind-boggling science within a vivid narrative illustrating how scientific rivalry gave birth to atomic physics.
