An impassioned plea for peace by the discoverer of Vitamin C (for which he won the Nobel Prize in Medicine). Naively idealistic, but affecting, the author describes a possible world in which problems are resolved not by violence but by applied intelligence, and man turns away from the ever-accelerating development of more and more powerful weapons. In light of the recent terrorist destruction of the World Trade Towers, it's difficult to take Szent-Gyorgi as more than a misguided idealist. There are those for whom reason is an empty shell of a word. ( )
