MEDIA REVIEWS

Secrets of the Old One is one of the best scientist-sketches and adds to Bernstein's long list of such successes.

Peter L. Gallison, American Scientist, Volume 94, Number 3, May-June 2006

Bernstein's book is wonderful and, as far as I can judge as a professional physicist, very pedagogical for non-specialists.

Andre Martin, CERN Courier, Volume 46, Number 3, 2006
