    1. Wow, this was more of a "detailed history of atomic physics from 1930-1950" than an LBL history. I gave it 4 stars because I'll likely be the only rating in a while and it really did have a plethora of information inbut sometimes I skimmeda lot of times. All in all a bit dry for the basic reader but if you're a physics nerd, why not?
