***THE INSPIRATION FOR OPPENHEIMER, WINNER OF 7 OSCARS, INCLUDING BEST PICTURE, BEST DIRECTOR AND BEST ACTOR***

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE FOR NONFICTION

'Reads like a thriller, gripping and terrifying' Sunday Times

Physicist and polymath, as familiar with Hindu scriptures as he was with quantum mechanics, J. Robert Oppenheimer - director of the Manhattan Project that developed the atomic bomb - was the most famous scientist of his generation. In their meticulous and riveting biography, Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin reveal a brilliant, ambitious, complex and flawed man, profoundly involved with some of the momentous events of the twentieth century.
