Summary
"This is a book for the complete layman. It follows the steps that were taken historically in going from the earliest questions about the nature of common substances to the large-scale liberation of atomic energy. The number of these steps is small, and the ideas involved are simple. They can be described in all their essentials without assuming any knowledge of physics, chemistry, and mathematics."--Preface
