John Archibald Wheeler’s fascinating life brings us face to face with the central characters and discoveries of modern physics. He was the first American to learn of the discovery of nuclear fission, later coined the term “black hole,” led a renaissance in gravitation physics, and helped to build Princeton University into a mecca for physicists.

From nuclear physics, to quantum theory, to relativity and gravitation, Wheeler’s work has set the hples of research for half a century. His career has brought him into contact with the most brilliant minds of his field; Fermi, Bethe, Rabi, Teller, Oppenheimer, and Wigner are among those he called colleagues and friends.
