The Book of Telling PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Book of Telling free pdf It was only after her father's death that Sharona Muir discovered he had invented Israel's first rocket. Muir's parents divorced when she was very young, but she adored the father she saw on Saturday outings. He was "invention-a-minute" Ben, a man who created surgical equipment that saved lives. After he died she learned by chance that Itzak Bentov had been a member of a top-secret group of scientists called Hemmed that made weapons for Israel's War of Independence. Amazed by the discovery, Muir traveled to Israel to meet her father's colleagues--an all-but-unknown group of European refugees who had been summoned by David Ben-Gurion to create weapons for a new nation. In a rooftop shed in Tel Aviv these young scientists worked day and night, falling asleep at their desks while still holding their pencils. Through their memories Muir comes to know the exuberant, impassioned, and creative young Bentov. She weaves her own memories of him into their stories: demonstrating his latest invention for her, taking her canoeing, sharing his wilder thoughts about consciousness and the cosmos. The result--a story of invention and self-invention, of Israel's founding generation, and of a deep, abiding love between father and daughter--becomes an incandescent memoir.
