  • Engrossing... At a time when British citizenship is being debated, we would do well to remember the case of Max Perutz along with the many other immigrants who transfused the intellectual life-blood of this country in the postwar years

    Giles Foden, Guardian
  • Ferry has captured her subject's genial, uncompetitive personality well

    Brenda Maddox, Literary Review
  • I loved it. As a scientist, reading this well-written biography of a great researcher was a treat.... Max Perutz was a great man and a great researcher, and here he has received the biography he deserves

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Elegant, adroit biography...delightful

  • Georgina Ferry's biography captures not only the scientific advances made by Perutz but also his curious personal qualities
