A light-hearted memoir of a career in 20th century astrophysics, its challenges, its participants, and the fascinating places they worked. With humor and insight Dr. Helmut Abt tells how he located the site of the first national observatory at Kitt Peak, how he helped the Chinese get started in astrophysics, plus the joys of being the editor of the Astrophysical Journal for 29 years, and his work on double stars that led to the discovery of exoplanets.
