"In the tradition of Carl Sagan and John McPhee, a bracing cerebral voyage past intergalactic hoopla and backwoods retreats." "--Kirkus Reviews"
"An unusual and often moving double biography...In their individual ways, the Dysons embody the extremes of twentieth century life--science and technology and the revolt against them." "--The New Yorker"
"A compelling and evocative biography of father and son...a highly moving allegory on the compelling ideologies of our times...Aside from any deeper meanings one could extract from this book, it is a lot of fun." "--San Francisco Chronicle"
