This 1950's book explained in detail why it was important to not explode nuclear weapons above ground. It also proposed a national peace institute and recommended we spend as much on researching paths to peace as we do on war. It would certainly provide a better return on the money spent. In the 1980's we finally created the National Institute of Peace but today it still has only 70 employees. Pauling is the only person to receive two Nobel prizes by himself. He deserved others for promoting health through nutritional supplements (especially vitamin C), discovered a cure for heart disease that the U.S. gov still refuses to finance research into (6 g lysine and 6 g vitamin C spread over each day), and Watson and Crick said he is the co-discoverer of DNA. He has more honorary degrees and scientific publications than anyone else. He wrote the first book that connect quantum mechanics to chemistry and the first intro to chemistry book titled "Chemistry" which is still the most popular chemistry book. Watson said he read it 4 years before discovering DNA and said it's still the only chemistry he knows.
