Mormon Scientist: The Life and Faith of Henry Eyring (Hardcover )
Twice in the final years of his life, Elder Neal A. Maxwell told a grandson of Henry Eyring's, "You need to write your grandfather's story."
This is that story of Henry Eyring, perhaps the Church's most acclaimed scientist. It is a book about science and Mormonism, written to be easily understood by newcomers to both subjects. It demonstrates why one of the Church's highest-profile intellectuals was also one of its humblest believers. In fact, this story of Henry Eyring shows how intellect and belief go hand-in-hand and how simple, faithful people can change the world.

Thanks to Dr. Eyring I became a scientist and surgeon. He was the first LDS scientist I had ever heard of and thanks to his example I acheived my dreams.
I loved this biography.
