The autobiography of a Nobel Prize winner, this book tells us about George Olah's fascinating research into extremely strong superacids and how it yielded the common term "magic acids." Olah guides us through his long and remarkable journey, from Budapest to Cleveland to Los Angeles, with a stopover in Stockholm. This updated autobiography of a Nobel Prize winner George A. Olah: * Chronicles the distinguished career of a chemist whose work in a broad range of chemistry areas, and most notably that in methane chemistry, led to technologies that impact the processing and utility of alternative fuels * Is based on Olah's work on extremely strong superacids and how they yielded the common term, "magic acids" * Details events since the publication of the first edition in 2000 * Inspires readers with details on Dr. Olah's successful recent research on methanol, intended to help provide a solution to "the oil problem"
