    1. I seek comfort in this book. I found it, or should I say it found me since I haven't found a second copy in spite of looking hard, when I needed it most. It's a beautiful portrait of a brave and brilliant man and vouches for hard work, persistence and for the need of structure in life. I would have enjoyed Chandra's company - sang Carnatic music for him, exchanged puns and asked him many questions on science, life and the universe. This book is testimony to a life perfectly led, and to a man who [...]

    2. This is an excellent account of the life of one of the more brilliant scientific minds of the 20th century, a century already filled with groundbreaking discoveries in many fields of science, including astrophysics. Chandra (for short) grew up in India at a time when British colonialism was increasingly in conflict with the Indian movement for independence, but it seems the merit-based British educational system together with Chandra’s brilliance, produced an exceptional mind.

    3. This biography of Nobel Laureate Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar by Kameshwar Wali is gains orders of more authenticity because the author Kameshwar Wali is himself both a Physicist and South-Indian born, who is able to bring out the cultural nuances (of Physics and South-India) like few other biographers could have.

    4. Not only it is a great book about Chandra, it also has lots of information about other things surrounding Chandra at that time, including Astronomy in England in 1930s, Yerkes Observatory, Astrophysical journals history and many others. But what I found is the most interesting part is during the interview at the end of the book. It was full of information and stories.
