The Pope of Physics
- Enrico Fermi and the Birth of the Atomic Age
- By: Gino Segre, Bettina Hoerlin
- Narrated by: Tim Campbell
- Length: 10 hrs and 39 mins
Enrico Fermi is unquestionably among the greats of the world's physicists, the most famous Italian scientist since Galileo. Called "the Pope" by his peers, he was regarded as infallible in his instincts and research. His discoveries changed our world; they led to weapons of mass destruction and conversely to life-saving medical interventions. This unassuming man struggled with issues relevant today, such as the threat of nuclear annihilation and the relationship of science to politics.

I just loved this audiobook. Very interesting, both the science part and the story of the Popes life. Highly recomend it.
