  • You don't need to know your quantum physics to be gripped by Monk's doorstop study of the momentous life of J Robert Oppenheimer… Monk serves his subject well by sparing us neither the worst nor the best in him.

    Ed Caesar, Sunday Times
  • Superlative.

    Boyd Tonkin, Independent
  • Illuminating.

  • [A] fine biography... Oppenheimer has already been served well by biographers. However, Monk here takes the scholarship to a new level.
