Richard Feynman, "Of course you're joking, Mr. Feynman."


Publisher: AST

Age restrictions: 12+

He was known for his passion for jokes and pranks, painted amazing portraits, and played exotic musical instruments. An excellent speaker, he turned each of his lectures into an exciting intellectual game. Not only students and colleagues, but also people simply passionate about physics were eager to attend his speeches. The autobiography of a great scientist is more exciting than an adventure novel. This is one of the few books that will forever remain in the memory of everyone who reads them.

Michael White and John Gribin, Stephen Hawking. Life among the stars."


Publisher: AST

Age restrictions: 12+

The history of the scientist and personal biography are combined in this book to make a complete story about an outstanding person. Stephen Hawking was an unusual physicist: he perhaps did more than many other academics to expand our lay understanding of the laws of the universe. His theoretical studies of the nature of black holes and original speculations about the origin of the cosmos placed new emphasis in the field of general knowledge: theoretical physics came into the spotlight for the first time. Upon the publication of A Brief History of Time, his name became known to everyone: despite the complexity and intricacy of cosmology, the book sold millions of copies around the world. Stephen Hawking was confined to a wheelchair for most of his life due to a rare motor neurone disease, but this did not break him intellectually. Some even hold the opinion that, freed from everyday worries, he was finally able to focus on research and calculations. Michael White and John Gribbin managed to maintain a balance between the two sides of the protagonist's personality and paint a verbal portrait of a tireless genius who knew no boundaries.

Sergei Belyakov, “Gumilyov, son of Gumilyov.”


Publisher: AST

Age restrictions: 16+

Sergei Belyakov is a historian and literary critic, a specialist in the biography and scientific heritage of Lev Nikolaevich Gumilyov. For about twenty years he has been studying the passionary theory of ethnogenesis created by the scientist. The son of Anna Akhmatova and Nikolai Gumilev, a prisoner of Norilsk and Kamyshlag, who survived four arrests and two camp terms, a soldier of the Great Patriotic War, a participant in the storming of Berlin, Lev Nikolaevich Gumilev is a historian with a unique fate and a strange personal life full of secrets and mysteries. Gumilyov wrote mainly about the Ancient World and the Middle Ages, but the theory he created explains the present day better than others and allows us to predict the future of Russia and Europe, China and the Muslim world. “I just learned that people are different, and I wanted to tell you why there were and will be bloody scandals between peoples,” said Lev Gumilyov. We need his ideas today, in the era of new migration of peoples, in times of bankruptcy of multiculturalism and tolerance. This book is the most complete biography of the Russian historian, based on an extensive collection of documents and materials, including previously unpublished ones.
