Reviews

"This is a fascinating account of a major particle accelerator application success by an enthusiastic scientist who played a major role in its development." CERN Courier "Harry Gove's excellent book ... presents the definitive history of the use of tandem electrostatic accelerators in accelerator mass spectrometry as well as the wide variety of applications of this new technique. ..."Quite part from the description of techniques and technology, the book provides a wealth of fascinating insights into a broad range of both the physical and social sciences; it is the perfect book for a long plane trip and, of course, for anyone either working in or interested in accelerator mass spectrometry." D Allan Bromley in Physics Today "It is a fascinating book because in every sentence one feels the passionate involvement of the author. Gove describes AMS in a similar fashion. His book is full of his personal experiences, including details about what people said, and did, or did not do. He does not try to be objective. There is nothing wrong with such an approach, but the prospective reader should be aware that this is not a textbook on AMS. What one learns is something else, perhaps equally - if not more - important than a cool description of AMS from a purely scientific book: it is a beautiful but necessarily biased view of how the development of AMS happened with real people. Along the way, one learns about the basics of the technological development of AMS, and about some of the more interesting - if not to say recondite - applications."
