"Otto Frisch took part in some of the most momentous developments in modern physics, notably the discovery of nuclear fission, a term which he coined.""In writing a charming, light-hearted cameo of his life and times as a scientist, Professor Frisch has revealed more about science than many authors with greater pretensions. This is a book that deserves to be read, and will be enjoyed, by a wide audience." "Despite his modest title, what Frisch 'manages to remember' is quite impressive. He loved to tell stories and his many vignettes of this associates ... include nearly every outstanding physicist who worked in nuclear physics."
