The Information (Fourth Estate, 2011).
[A] tour de force…. This is intellectual history of tremendous verve, insight, and significance. Unfailingly spirited, often poetic, Gleick recharges our astonishment over the complexity and resonance of the digital sphere and ponders our hunger for connectedness.
—Donna Seaman, Booklist
Isaac Newton (Fourth Estate, 2003).
A masterpiece of brevity and concentration. Isaac Newton sees its angular subject in the round, presenting him as scientist and magician, believer and heretic, monster and man…. It will surely stand as the definitive study for a very long time to come. Fortunate Newton!
—John Banville, The Guardian
What Just Happened: A Chronicle from the Information Frontier (Pantheon, 2002).
A marvellous journey around our technology-drenched world…. The work of a master.
Faster: The Acceleration of Just About Everything (Pantheon, 1999).
In years to come Faster will tell people what we were like as clearly as Dickens or Tom Wolfe.
—Patricia Volk, The New York Times.
Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman (Pantheon, 1992).
A rare, jewel-like biography… terrifically readable. It achieves an almost perfect balance between the physicist’s work and his life… Gleick is a consummate craftsman.
—Washington Post Book World.
