Alfred Nobel: A Biography
Arcade Publishing, 2006 - 342 páginas
The most complete and only full-length biography of the legendary inventor of dynamite and founder of the prizes that bear his name. As with many extraordinary lives, Nobel's biography reads better than most fiction - born in poverty, his creation of a safe method for detonating nitro-glycerine catapulted him to wealth and fame. Spurned by the woman he loved and dubbed 'the merchant of death' by a press horrified at the capabilities of dynamite, Nobel bequeathed his fortune to the foundation of prizes celebrating peace, literature and scientific achievement.
