The best essays are "Science and Ethics," "Some Consequences of Materialism," "Physics declares its Independence," and "Biochemistry and Mr. Gandhi." The book ends with an exciting short story involving intrigue, murder, and adventure that rivals the best James Bond stories. It is told in the first person and is so convincing that I wasn't sure it was fiction until I re-read the preface where he explains why he included it in this volume. He said he doesn't plan to write any more fiction and so he included this story here because he will never have enough stories to fill a separate volume of fiction.
