I just finished reading through this book [PLAIN]http://e-ducation.net/scientists/30years.jpg [Broken] and I really liked it. The author focused on the ideas that shaped quantum theory, and only talked about the people behind the thoeries when it was relevant.....although the author does go into several amusing stories about the different physicists. I am halfway through this book [URL]http://wilwheaton.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c59aa53ef0133f2758cb2970b-800wi[/URL] I haven't got into it as much. It focuses completely on the people behind the theories and doesn't talk about the science so much. I've also heard good things about about this book, but I haven't picked it up yet.
