I read in a post a while ago someone recommended reading biographies was a good way to see the path of people that have already completed a PhD. Giving you ideas and expectations of what you might see. Of course I have a ways to go before I am in a doctorate program, but would still like to take a look at one nonetheless. I've tried searching Amazon and this forum as well, but didn't come up with anything. Also, Barnes and Noble didn't have much either. Have any physicists written a biography, or is my search futile? If there are any, is there one that stands out above the rest? Thanks for the help.
