A Story of the People who Shaped Fermilab

Symmetry Breaking has a wonderful review of a new book on this history of Fermilab. Titled "Fermilab: Physics, the Frontier and Megascience", it is written by three historians who certainly know about the history of Fermilab intimately.

The book is a must-read for science and Illinois history buffs as well as anyone who has ever worked at or visited Fermilab. This first widely published history of Fermilab gains its strength from the close ties its authors have with the laboratory.

I certainly hope to get my hands on this book in the next few months.
