My Comments on This Book
    Edward Andrade worked briefly with Rutherford at Manchester, between doing his PhD at Heidelberg while on an 1851 scholarship and joining the Royal Artillery at the outbreak of World War One. He was a good speaker on general science and was a popular member of the BBC's "Brains Trust" programme during World War Two. He writes well and I recommend this book.

Errors Noted.
