This fine book, comprehensive and acutely insightful, documents the transforming power of intellectual leadership." - Dudley Herschbach,Harvard University, Nobel Prize for Chemistry 1986 "This is more than the biography of an important contributor to the development of Stanford and "Silicon Valley"; it is a well-researched and detailed account of the development and maturation of one of the world's great universities." - Gordon Moore,Co-Founder, Intel Corp.
