Small book cover: Memories of a Theoretical Physicist

Memories of a Theoretical Physicist
by

Publisher: arXiv.org
Number of pages: 151

Description:
Probably the target audience is theoretical physicists, especially young ones, who may enjoy comparing my struggles with their own. It will probably have too much physics for a nontechnical reader, and too little for a physicist, but perhaps there will be different things for each.
