Cline recounts the development of quantum theory, capturing the atmosphere of argument and discovery among physicists in the 1920s. She explores the backgrounds of the major figures--Rutherford, Bohr, Planck, Einstein--separately, but draws them together as they begin to consider each other's questions about the nature of matter.
