Boltzmann's Demon
James Sandlin Ashby

Inspired by the true story of Ludwig Boltzmann, the father of theoretical physics, Boltzmann's Demon tells the story of one man's obsession for the theory of the atom, and the cost of his overwhelming passion. A hero of Einstein, Ludwig Boltzmann battled the scientific community of his time not only to prove the existence of atoms, but to redefine our understanding of science for all time. Every accomplishment has its price however, and sometimes history demands more than we can pay.
