Publisher's Summary

Discover the remarkable life of Alfred Nobel!

Alfred Nobel began his career as a distinguished inventor, but his inventions often failed to bring him the peace of mind he craved. One invention in particular - explosive dynamite - left him full of regret. He knew that it wouldn’t be long before his creation would be used to hurt others, and for this, he felt awful. As part of his final act in life, he would seek to vindicate himself as well as the rest of the world as he pursued the establishment of what would become the Nobel Prize. This is the story of the man who brought us that prize and so much more.

Discover a plethora of topics such as:

  • Early life in Sweden and Russia
  • Explosive accidents
  • The invention of dynamite
  • A troubled affair
  • The merchant of death
  • The Nobel Peace Prize
  • And much more
