About the Author
----------------

Modern Science Made Easy
By one of the leading physicists of the twentieth century, George Gamow's One, Two, Three…Infinity is one of the most
memorable popular books on physics, mathematics, and science generally ever written, famous for having, directly or
indirectly, launched the academic and/or scientific careers of many young people whose first real encounter with the
wonders and mysteries of mathematics and science was through reading this book as a teenager. Untypically for popular
science books, this one is enhanced by the author's own delightful sketches. Reviewers were enthusiastic when One, Two,
Three…Infinity was published in 1947.

In the Author's Own Words:
"If and when all the laws governing physical phenomena are finally discovered, and all the empirical constants occurring
in these laws are finally expressed through the four independent basic constants, we will be able to say that physical
science has reached its end, that no excitement is left in further explorations, and that all that remains to a
physicist is either tedious work on minor details or the self-educational study and adoration of the magnificence of the
completed system. At that stage physical science will enter from the epoch of Columbus and Magellan into the epoch of
the National Geographic Magazine!" — George Gamow

Critical Acclaim for One, Two, Three…Infinity:
"This skillful presentation is for the non-professional and professional scientist. It will broaden the knowledge of
each and give the imagination wide play." — Chemistry and Engineering News

"A stimulating and provocative book for the science-minded layman." — Kirkus Reviews

"This is a layman's book as readable as a historical novel, but every chapter bears the solid imprint of authoritative
research." — San Francisco Chronice

"George Gamow succeeds where others fail because of his remarkable ability to combine technical accuracy, choice of
material, dignity of expression, and readability." — Saturday Review of Literature
