    1 thought on “Ordinary Geniuses: Max Delbruck, George Gamow, and the Origins of Genomics andBig Bang Cosmology”

    1. Great biographical book telling the stories of George Gamow and Max Delbrück, two pioneering scientists who shared the ability to jump between fields whenever they find an interesting question. The stories behind scientific breakthroughs I find very important, especially to the aspiring scientist. This book is a reminder to all that there are many paths to success, and that it’s never too late to do something.

    2. Про фізику 20 століття, та дві дисципліни, які виникли тоді: космологія та молекулярна генетика. А ще про Макса Дельбрюка та Георгія Гамова (уродженця Одеси), які долучились до формування цих дисциплін у зародку. Викладання науково-популярне, формул немає, але щоб нагадати як [...]

    3. One potential problem with group biographies, even with a group of two individuals, is that the members of the group may not have much to do with eachother. In this case, Max Delbruck and George Gamow were acquaintances and then friends from their 20s, so this problem does not arise. Delbruck, of German origin, and Gamow, of Russian origin, were both physicists who shifted their studies from pure physics to what we would call molecular biology for Delbruck and mostly astrophysics and cosmology f [...]

    4. An inspired choice to do a paired biography of George Gamow and Max Max Delbrück. They were both born at the turn of the century, one in Russia and one in Germany, both started in quantum mechanics and then branched out -- Gamow to nuclear physics and cosmology and Delbrück much further afield to biology. And hovering over both of them from the beginning to nearly the end of the book is Niels Bohr and the "spirit of Copenhagen".One of the things this book conveys most beautifully is how Gamow [...]

    5. Interesting and well written portrayals of Delbruck and Gamov- only 'ordinary geniuses'- as Segre playfully calls them, yet far from ordinary scientists and human beings. Max Delbruck is best known for his work on macrophages (how bacteria become resistant to viruses through mutation) which paved the road for genetics and genetic code discovery, and for which he got the Nobel prize in Physiology and Medicine. Gamov is a flamboyant Russian physicist who is the father of the Big Bang theory. Both [...]

    6. This was an interesting and enjoyable book. The lives of Delbruck and Gamov were woven together and the two old friends lived remarkable lives. Gamov come across as involved in many of the breakthroughs in physics in the first half of the 20th century but his "flightiness" meant the concentration needed to get a Nobel Prize was missing. Delbruck did get a Nobel Prize, however, and after deciding that physics was not going to be a career for him, went on to excel in the early development of genom [...]

    7. A very readable and entertaining book about these two scientists, who both started as particle physicists and took divergent paths. There was time that I knew Gino Segre, a most charming fellow, and I'm glad he has become a charming writer. This is a book that non-scientists can read even though I got a bit lost in molecular biology, but that can't be helped when one is so ignorant of such things.

    8. I grew up with George Gamow's popular science books so I was very interested in this look at his personal and scientific life. Pairing him with Max Delbruck provides an overview of the development of cosmology and molecular biology.

    9. This definitely lost a star for the last three chapters. it was quite good up until thenGamow and Delbruck didn't seem very ordinary to me! The end seemed to go away from following Max's and Geo's lives and got into some philosophical bits I didn't bargain for.

    10. Fascinating stories of cosmology and DNA, and the interplay between Gamow and Delbrück. But Gino isn't as good a write as his father, Emilio, was, so the story lags at times. Not as good as 'The Double Helix" nor "My World Line" by Gamow, but still interesting. As always, I learned something.

    11. one of the best books i have ever read. it gives insight on how science used to work. as someone who studied genomics but who works for cosmologists i am convinced that this book picked me rather than the other way round.

    12. I picked this up to read since I really enjoyed his "Matter of Degrees" book. I guess I am not into his bibliographic style however. I put this down after a chapter due to disinterest.

    13. More of a biography than I was expecting. Not what I was looking for, though probably my bad for overlooking it in the overview.

    14. Much more of biographie than science left me dissapointed. But it did intrigued me for further reading on DNA.

    15. Great example of the interesting stories behind science. The lives of the scientists reveal they are people who made things happen by dedication and perseverance while remaining normal people.
