-- The publication of "Fritz Zwicky, an Extraordinary Astrophysicist"
has been welcomed by experts in the field such as Sir Patrick Moore in the Sky at Night and Ian Morrison in Astronomy Now. They commend the authors Alfred Stöckli and Roland Müller for providing fascinating insights into this complicated genius who made a major, though largely unrecognized, contribution to our understanding of the universe.
Cambridge Scientific Publishers have published "Fritz Zwicky, an Extraordinary Astrophysicist"
by Alfred Stöckli and Roland Müller with special contributions by Norbert Straumann and Gustav Andreas Tammann, translated by Ian Gordon.
From the start Zwicky is recognized to be someone of unusual ability and temperament - and it is his temperament that adds spice to the story of his life. His contributions to astronomy are significant, including producing the first evidence for supernovae, dark matter and gravitational lenses. Ian Morrison sums it up as "totally rewarding and highly recommended"
Ian Gordon, MD of Peak Translations, has personally translated this biography and found it an extremely enriching experience. “It was a privilege to come close to a man of such genius, admittedly from a safer vantage point than his contemporaries.”
