From the reviews:
"Andreas Karachalios produced a well researched and meticulously documented biography of Erich Huckel ... . It is readable and contains a considerable amount of theoretical chemistry that allows not only the evaluation of Huckel's oeuvre, but informs also about the early development of quantum chemistry in the 1920s and 1930s. It is warmly recommended to all theoretical and computational chemists and to all others who are interested in the history of chemistry during the first third of the twentieth century."--- (Istvan Hargittai, Structural Chemistry, Vol. 21, 2010)
"This is an important and much needed book. I consider it a must buy for historians of quantum chemistry. Now what we need next is an English translation of Huckle's autobiography.
