John Wheeler Biography?

    Can anybody recommend a good bio of John Wheeler? I'd especially like to read one that tracks his thoughts and theories, rather than one focusing on his personal life. Any suggestions for non-biographical treatment of his work would also be appreciated.

    Thanks for the URL. I didn't know that J. A. Wheeler invented the one-electron universe.

    It was a in speculative discussion he had w/ Feynman but I don't think either of them took it seriously afterwards although it did get some press.
