THE LAST MAN WHO KNEW EVERYTHING The Life and Times of Enrico Fermi, Father of the Nuclear Age

by | Read by Tristan Morris

Biography & Memoir • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Enrico Fermi was a giant in nuclear physics, but his story has gone largely untold until now. This audiobook seeks to fill that gap. Tristan Morris offers a solid narration with an appropriate pace and an engaging tone He adds no dramatics to a career that included developing the atomic bombs that were used to end WWII. Morris often gives no clue when he is reading a direct quotation, so listeners might not be clear when an assessment is that of the author or one of Fermi's contemporaries. Also, the author "fills the stage" with so many players that it becomes hard to keep them straight. A basic knowledge of nuclear physics would be helpful for a full understanding of the technical passages. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2018]
