This book left me wanting to find everything Linus Pauling ever wrote and read it immediately. Working as I do, on the same street where Pauling grew up and living not far from where his wife grew up, the letters from his early life are particularly interesting to me. His was a fascinating life and his accomplishments are staggering. Both Pauling and his wife Ava Helen deserve far more written about them and their ideas. Great read. Highly recommended.
