It is this book I went right in after reading Mathematics and the Physical World, and coming away praising the physical beauty of the world in which we live in.I don't know about you but it's nice when books inspire you to venture and expand your knowledge of a particular subject, no matter how difficult it may seem.

Some seem to have been inspired by Stephen Hawking, but while it's maybe indelicate to say so, the more I got to know, the less inspired I was. I certainly didn't become a physicist out of Hawking adulation -- reading books by and about Richard Fe.

Each chapter is centered around a single great figure, or at most two, with other physicists of the era and their contributions forming a background.

Major topics include the dawn of physics, the Dark Ages and the Renaissance, Newtonian physics, heat as energy, electricity, the relativistic revolution, quantum theory, and the atomic nucleus and. This book is no different and it has the added bonus that Gamow actually knew most of the modern physicists--starting with Einstein--personally.

I would like indications of academic books written by great physicists, as the Feynman lectures and Landau's books.

This is a loaded question, because you suggest that writing a good lecture book does not make one of scientific relevance, which is completely wrong.For a general view in physics you could check out the Feynmann lectures on physics.

In my personal opinion, Feynmann is the most important physicist of the second half of 20th century, and he was also an extraordinary profesor, so these books are.
