Endorsements & Reviews

“The editor of New Scientist is at it again, illuminating the wacky side of science and scientists.  The time the organizing principle is the remarkable ingenuity shown by hard-working scientists, ingenuity that sometimes verges on, well, craziness. A deeply fascinating and occasionally rib-tickling book.” Booklist
