David Schwartz’s new book is The Last Man Who Knew Everything.  Appearing in Chicago at LitFest, Schwartz tells the story of Enrico Fermi, “the father of the nuclear age.”  This is a story of science and scientist, in the capable hands of a great story teller.  And of course, with Fermi as its subject, you know this is a story with deep Chicago roots.  Get this book and don’t put it on your science shelf.  Put it on your Chicago shelf!
