    "He invented an explosive that was stronger than any known before - an exceedingly efficient means of destruction. In order to calm his conscience, he created his Nobel Prizes" - Einstein. There is a certain irony to his inventions, but his intention to use his inventions were for the good of humanity. Like he said - "there is nothing in our world that cannot be misused." Researchers and inventors could not be held responsible for what politicians and generals did with their products.

    I LOVED this book, but it is not for everyone. Fant's biography is well-written and his observations of Nobel seem apt, but the book is incredibly detailed and a task to finish. I enjoyed the majority of the book but the inclusion of that volume of personal letters and also so many details of his business dealings became tedious by the end. Despite this complaint, the author's use of such detail allows for a complex and nuanced view of this influential man. Nobel had a rare combination of talent I LOVED this book, but it is not for everyone. Fant's biography is well-written and his observations of Nobel seem apt, but the book is incredibly detailed and a task to finish. I enjoyed the majority of the book but the inclusion of that volume of personal letters and also so many details of his business dealings became tedious by the end. Despite this complaint, the author's use of such detail allows for a complex and nuanced view of this influential man. Nobel had a rare combination of talent at the bench in his research endeavors (he was a prolific inventor) and significant skill on the business end as well. He also seems to have suffered a good deal through his life, often lonely and guilt-ridden. If you do not feel up to attempting this read, do yourself a favor and learn something about this man's fascinating biography and the events of his life that lead up to creating the Nobel Prizes. This book is an in-depth history of his life from birth to death, including his education, research, inventions, business associations, love life, family relationships, and more. What makes it great is the other layer of context, presenting Nobel's feelings on education, class disparity, war, weapons, and peace, and legacy; his thoughts, and expressions of guilt, pride, loyalty, arrogance, and loneliness are exhibited extensively through letters and his unpublished creative writing.

    Thoroughly researched and ably presented. There are more explosions in this guy's life than in any Road Runner cartoon. Might be because he invented dynamite? And the Nobel "peace" prize goes to...? A unique individual who ran a mean business in a multitude of countries much of it with family members. Definitely earns 4 kabooms.
