"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
"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
