Sharona Ben-Tov Muir discovered after the death of her father, inventor and New Age guru Itzhak Bentov, that he had created Israel’s first rocket. A secret group of scientists working in a rooftop shed, the “Science Corps,” of which he was a part, invented weapons during Israel’s war of independence and later developed Israel’s nuclear resources and other major scientific projects. Bentov, however, settled in Boston and made his fortune with such medical inventions as a cardiac catheter, which he created in his home laboratory, where Muir played as a child. Haunted by the question of why her father had never discussed his past, Muir traveled to Israel to find the Corps. Through her own memories and the memories they share, Muir comes to know the brilliant, impassioned, and creative young Bentov as he demonstrates his latest invention for her, takes her canoeing, and reveals his thoughts about consciousness and the cosmos. Muir elegantly evokes the hubbub of Jerusalem streets, the wartime adventures of her hosts, and the inner lives of Israelis. The resulting story of invention and self-invention, of the Corps’s wartime experience as told for the first time, and of a deep, abiding love between father and daughter is an incandescent memoir. The author provides a new preface for this new Bison Books edition.

The Book of Telling by Professor Sharona Ben-tov-Muir, Ph.D. 4/17/18
As a member of Amazon Prime, I happen to find “invent-a-minute-Ben” and his daughter Sharona. I went to high school with this woman! Having read this book I learned so much about what she went through. I always knew she was VERY intelligent, but didn’t know about her childhood or young adult life. She wrote an amazing account of a very difficult subject. I may have to revisit this book. Her father was definitely fascinating. Sounds like she had a pretty dysfunctional family life. I can’t believe her Mother whom she refers to very little except to say this Mother in title only asks Sharona to prove her father loved her in order for Sharona to receive her father's inherence! How cruel this woman is! One can’t prove something like that. But it sure can cause a daughter to be triggered into disabling self-doubt. Her father showed his love for her in his own way. Sharona is a courageous woman doing all the research she talks about in the narration. Personally I wanted to know more about why the biological "mother" was mostly missing in Sharona’s life. “Ben” certainly wasn’t one’s classic Dad. After is tragic death via plane crash she sets on an odyssey alone as a female to places not necessarily safe for a woman to trek alone to the middle east. She is great at detailing surroundings, but I personally wanted to know more about the family dynamics. It must be the Social Scientist in me. This book was definitely particularly special to me having known her in high school. [I was the only girl in a back brace at the time]. I congratulate her on putting her intelligence to good use. Another person could have developed Dissociative Disorder. This shows the inner strength of this person. With all the strain and strange relationships she had with parental figures she also had impressive strength to execute what she did and put her energy into being a professional writer. Mozel-Tov and congratulations is what I have to say. I’m proud to have known this gal at one point in our lives. Also, while there is great resemblance to her father, she has blossomed into a very attractive woman. I’m so happy she found a husband to share her life with.
Many avid readers know her work very will. I’m not an avid reader, but can say this book impressed me. Even if one didn’t have the honor of knowing her personally, it’s a great read about the discovering of one’s parent and their accomplishments to find who this person was after their tragic passing.

Sharon Ben-Tov Muir is the daughter of a brilliant, barely educated, Checkoslovokian Jewish survivor who along with other Hummed scientists took on the task of defending a new born Israel beset by a myriad of King Herods. Mission accomplished Itzak Bentov came to America, fathered his only child, became Invention a Minute Ben, and a controversial guru.
As a reader I am fascinated by tales of the super accomplished and driven. Recent history that is still shaping our world, dysfunctional families that almost, but do not devour their young, eccentric thinkers that may or am not be mad, fathers and daughters trying to connect..all this and more is told and reflected on.

An interesting book.

This memoir traces the secret life of the author's father in Israel (in its early days), the coming to terms with her father's past, and the background of the founding of Israel and all it entailed. She enjoyed hearing her father's 'stories' of his life in Israel, where he had been a member of scientists and idealists, summoned by David Ben-Gurion to develop weapons for defense.

Bentov had jokingly called himself "Invention-a-Minute Ben" but she had no idea how important his invention of the first rocket launcher was to the war of Independence, and why he left that new state and came to United States of America. During the Arab-Israeli conflict, there were five invading armies, and the team of men and women who had to come up with the alternative to death worked around the clock. It was her father, in fact, who came up with the weapon called Loretta; another was developed with a two-inch-bore, but Ben's had only a one-inch-bore.

"While challenging the David-and-Goliath myth, historians agree on the hardships of the first round of the invasion, before the truce on June 11, 1948. A movie was made, 'Exodus,' and Pat Boone wrote the words to the song used in that docudrama. She looks on the photograph of this group of the brightest and bravest, many of them refugees from Europe, she seems to have a jaded eye on the group which was called Hemmed.

For the book, she traveled to Israel and interview many of the scientists. All admired and liked her jolly father, he was at the center of the picture, as he must have been in all of the plans to save his people. I wonder who that is pretending to be Hitler on the left with mustache, hat and raincoat. No one else was dressed in that fashion. It reminds me of the way Mrs. Keys described Julius Rosenberg when she might accidentally run into him on the elevator of the apartment house where they both lived in New York. He always wore a trench coat and hat as if he had something to hide, she'd related.

She began her search for the truth about her father in his basement laboratory. The 'telling' is to tell the truth as she lived it, later discovered it, and believes it to be. This was a self-discovery voyage into the past and the future of Israel.

Happy New Year, Rabbi.
