John Wheeler recalls a life centred upon the greatest discoveries and continuing mysteries of physics in his memoir named after three of the terms he coined. He worked with virtually every major physicist of the 20th century and his life brings us face to face with the central characters and discoveries of modern physics. From nuclear physics, to quantum theory, to relativity and gravitation, Wheeler's work has set the trajectory of research for half a century. Among those he has called colleagues and friends are Enrico Fermi, Hans Bethe, Edward Teller, Robert J. Oppenheimer and Eugene Wigner. In this autobiography, Wheeler reveals the excitement of each discovery, the character of each colleague and the underlying passion for knowledge that drives him still.
