I’ve read some staggeringly good (Auto)Biographies over the last few years, but I have sadly just finished the best ever.  You could actually forget that it is an Autobiography – it is a superb science book with penetrative insights into the way research does and does not work.  What am I talking about?  It is Luis W. Alvarez’s Autobiography titled “Alvarez:  Adventures of a Physicist”.  If you have any interest in Physics whatsoever it really should be on your bookshelf.
