The autobiographical portion of the book reads like a Who's Who of the scientific world of the late 19th and early 20th century. The collaboration of the various scientists went much deeper than I had imagined. In his papers, I particularly liked his analysis of the Religion vs Science debate.

He attended the Universities of Munich and Berlin to study physics under the great scientific leaders Kirchhoff and Helmholtz. His early work mainly focused on the study of thermodynamics, and in 1900 he published a paper on his quantum theory that would change the face of modern physics.

The autobiographical portion of the book reads like a Who's Who of the scientific world of the late 19th and early 20th century. The collaboration of the various scientists went much deeper than I had imagined.

In his papers, I particularly liked his analysis of the Religion vs Science debate. I believe that proponents of both sides should take the time to read and ponder upon his arguments and conclusions.

This book is quite interesting. It gives a very clear insight of Max Plank's scientific and philosophical thinking. This is a great book for scientific enthusiast as well as for those who are curious about how scientists think. In this book you will see how the scientific process was thought out by one of the great scientists of the 20th century. It also shows that this man of science was also a man of ethics and a man who was able to think outside the realm of science. A good read for young aspiring scientist as well as those who are already experienced.

I did not purchase this book for his thoughts on the quantum theory. I had studied it in grad school back in the 1950s. I have enjoyed his thoughts on the Phantoms of Science,especially chapter IV in which he addresses questions about science and religion: "There can never be any real opposition between science and religion; for the one is the complement of the other". He is very realistic about other problems of designing honest research systems.
His essay on The meaning and limits of exact Science is also very good.
The man is not a good writer, but his depth of scientific knowledge is excellent

Planck and Einstein were two of the most brilliant scientists of the 20th century. Their brilliant method and insights offer real alternatives to the dry, reductionist and abstract "set of axioms" that generally characterizes both science and engineering today. If we are to master advanced forms of energy, and to promote the development of our Solar System, these two thinkers should become part of your mental life.

The author develops a series of ideas about ethical and moral issues in a very shallow unsystematic way. It's not really a scientific autobiography, more a collection of personal memories and opinions. The first assay is probably the only remotely interesting as it covers the first years of the development of the quantum mechanical theory, the rest is absolutely expendable.

There was insight into the scientific career and obstacles encountered when promoting different perspectives. The causality question is investigated from various perspectives which was interesting.
