Last week Cindy Kelly, president of The Atomic Heritage Foundation, came to New York to interview Michael Joseloff (Tunisia 1967-69) about his new eBook Chasing Heisenberg: The Race for the Atom Bomb. She also interviewed Ben Bederson, a physicist who worked at Los Alamos designing ignition switches for the plutonium bomb. The video recordings will be online as part of the foundation’s “Voices of the Manhattan Project,” an oral history archive.
Joseloff reports that Chasing Heisenberg is selling well. It hit #1 in Amazon’s print and eBook Molecular Physics category. It has also led the eBook Math & Science category. Since the book launched last month, it has clawed its way past more than 98 thousand other books on Amazon’s digital best seller list and is currently ranked #5,960.
Michael’s book will be reviewed on our site within the coming weeks.
