Boneheads & Brainiacs: Heroes and Scoundrels of the Nobel Prize in Medicine
Which Nobel laureates were Nazis, communists, war heroes or cowards? Who was a poet or a sci-fi author? Who was dead wrong, or ahead of his time? Who was generous or stingy, a cheater or a hero? This is a look beyond the ivory tower of academics to get the backstory of the individual and his culture, and the impact on society at the time and subsequently.
Reviews of Boneheads and Brainiacs:
“An inherently fascinating, impressively informative, thoughtful and thought-provoking read from cover to cover … unreservedly recommended.” – Able Greenspan, Midwest Book Review
“A lively, engaging series of insights into how success is achieved, either purposefully or by accident.”– The Bookwatch
“Boneheads and Brainiacs is a dynamite read! From the beginning, it takes you through a scientific journey that both entertains and educates. It eloquently tells the background story of our Nobel prize winners for medicine with no blinders on.” – Priscilla J. Alfaro, MD
“Very entertaining but also very enlightening. We tend to think of Nobel Prize winners, especially in medicine, as some sort of gods, but they are merely fallible humans and some are quite offbeat. Get it and read it and be prepared to learn and be entertained!” – Lauren DeWitt, B.S. Pharmacy
“I absolutely loved reading Boneheads and Brainiacs. I was alternately delighted, surprised, and dismayed … very enlightening, extremely interesting and fun.” – Eleanor McCulley, RN
