No book that has appeared since has rivaled Uncertainty, now out of print, for its depth and rich detail of the life, times, and science of this brilliant and controversial figure of 20th-century physics.
Since the fall of the Soviet Union, long-suppressed information has emerged on Heisenberg’s role in the Nazi atomic bomb project. In Beyond Uncertainty, Cassidy interprets this and other previously unknown material within the context of his vast research and tackles the vexing questions of a scientist’s personal responsibility and guilt when serving an abhorrent military regime.

What a patriotic genius
This has been an amazing biography. It is a good idea that the author decided to publish this updated version of rhe original biography. The degree of details and the way the author introduces the background made the book more engaging and entertaining.

Perfect balance of biography and science writing. Non science-oriented people might find the physics tedious. Very clear narrative and clean prose.
