Hello Physics Forum! I'm happy to join you.

I would like to replace my distracting TV watching with something to keep me focused on my goals. My idea is to read stories about scientists. Please suggest books that tell really personal stories about scientists. They need to have character development and be of novel length so I can get into them like a TV show.
I'm thinking memoirs, diaries, biographies, or fiction based on a true story. I want to fall in love with characters, be inspired, and learn something too!

Louis de Broglie died 90 days before I was born so something on him would be superb.
I have tried putting famous names in the keyword and subject search at the library and that is a poor method.
