This book, "Richter's Scale: Measure of an Earthquake, Measure of a Man," gives details about the life of Charles Richter. He is best known for developing the Richter scale, but he was also a nudist and liked poetry. We tend to forget that scientists and famous figures of history were people too, each with their own quirks and interests.
