American Prometheus The Triumph and Tragedy of J Robert Oppenheimer Review ¾ 2 Review American Prometheus The Triumph and Tragedy of J Robert Oppenheimer J Robert Oppenheimer is one of the iconic figures of the twentieth century a brilliant physicist who led the effort to build the atomic bomb for his country in a time of war and who later. I thought this was fascinating J Robert Oppenheimer had a uniue upbringing I found very interesting He grew up in a nonobservant Jewish family and completed grade school in a private institution called The Ethical Cultural Society This was a Judaic reformist school where students were taught Ethical Imagination to see things not as they are but as they might be pg 19Oppenheimer described his childhood My life as a child did not prepare me for the fact that the world is full of cruel and bitter things pg 21 He was described as odd neurotic and depressed by his university classmates He eventually had a breakdown where he attacked a classmate pg 47 His poor social interactions and self alienating behaviors led him tell a friend I need physics than friends pg 91He was brilliant extremely intelligence and internalized the knowledge he acuired He eventually read the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads in the original Sanskrit pgs 99 102 His deep reflection and internalizing of the Gita would have a heavy impact during his work on the atomic bomb He liked things that were difficult And since almost everything was easy for him the things that would attract his attention were essentially the difficult He had a taste for the mystical and the cryptic pg 99Oppenheimer s credentials and reputation proceeded himself and landed him the job at the Los Alamos Research Laboratory in New Mexico In May 1942 he was appointed director of the fast neutron research with the curious title Coordinator of Rapid Rapture Almost immediately he began to organize a highly secret summer seminar of top theoretical physicists whose job it was to outline a bare bones design of an atomic bomb pg 180At the successful detonation of the atomic bomb at the Trinity Site he later told an interviewer I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture the Bhagavad Gita Vishnu is trying to persuade the prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes his multi armed form and says Now I am become death the destroyer of worlds pg 309Eventually his past actions and who he socialized with put him in the cross hairs of the Department of Justice and the FBI His loyalty was uestioned after he had accusations of being a Communist sympathizer being unpatriotic and was deemed a risk to national security Towards the end of his life he gave lectures at universities and dwelt on broader themes of culture and science He became a humanist pondering man s survival in an age of weapons of mass destruction pg 574I really enjoyed this one It was highly detailed and contained a lot of thoroughly researched information I would recommend it Thanks

American Prometheus The Triumph and Tragedy of J Robert Oppenheimer Review ¾ 2 Review American Prometheus The Triumph and Tragedy of J Robert Oppenheimer Er’s life and times from his early career to his central role in the Cold War This is biography and history at its finest riveting and deeply informative From the Trade Paperback edition. I am in the middle of moving from one country to another so I just do not have the time to write a decent review of this excellent marvelous book Please if you are at all interested in either history or amazing people grab this book soon On closing this book the reader truly understands the atmosphere that swallowed up America during the era of McCarthyism and the Cold War The reader comes to understand Oppenheimer his creativity his imagination and his failings too The list of the latter is long but boy do I admire the guy There is so much I could tell you about this man who I knew nothing about before I read this book except his label as the Father of the Atomic BombI don t regret reading Bomb The Race to Build and Steal the World s Most Dangerous Weapon but the two don t compare You in no way need to read one to read the other The first is about the bomb the Manhattan project and spying but this about Oppenheimer is about the person and his eraI listened to the audiobook read by Jeff Cummings I have no complaints with the narration Read the book or listen to it You choose which ever suits you best Just don t add it to one of those never ending lists of books that you don t get around to actually reading
