520    "My friendship with Freeman Dyson goes back over a half 
       century. My first contact with him goes back to the late 
       1950s, when I was at the Institute for Advanced Study, and
       then evolved when I was a consultant at General Atomics in
       La Jolla, California. Freeman was then trying to design a 
       space ship -- the Orion -- which would be propelled by 
       atomic bombs. When I left the Institute, Freeman and I 
       continued our correspondence and I saved his letters. They
       are written in an almost calligraphically elegant 
       handwriting. It is hard to see how you could make a 
       mistake in a mathematical computation if you wrote that 
       clearly. The letters show his human side and his enormous 
       range of knowledge. There are then two essays involving 
       the physicist Fritz Houtermans who was an extraordinarily 
       colorful character. There is a brief essay on Einstein's 
       collaboration with a fraud. There is even an essay on the 
       Titius-Bode law and the new exo-planets. Because of my 
       enduring interest in nuclear weapons, the reader will find
       essays devoted to that. There is also a bit of fiction at 
       the end"--|cProvided by publisher
