Book Summary

In this account of explorations into the world of magnetism, Professor Bitter tells of his lifelong dedication to understanding magnets and the bewildering forces they exert.  His search has led at one extreme to studies of the magnetic behavior of atoms and nuclear particles, and at the other to defenses against magnetic mines in naval warfare.  This is a lively autobiography of a scientist's delight in probing one of the richest fields in all physics.
