Reviews

"The dazzling clutch of scientific minds caught in mid-thought here makes for a read that provokes thought. . . . Delights abound."--Nature

"[Klein's] interview subjects explain their science clearly and display their passions vividly, making this an engaging introduction to a great breadth of scientific topics."--American Scientist

"An exceedingly welcome volume that will expose readers to all manner of topics that are likely new to them in a manner that focuses first on the lively personalities of the scientists, while slowly diving into their work. Surprises abound. . . and the book's diversionary aspect can not be overrated. Truly enjoyable."--Booklist

"This work will enthrall popular science lovers and STEM enthusiasts."--Library Journal

"Strongly recommended for biography readers and science enthusiasts who want to take a look at what events have shaped the lives of influential scientists, and how their scientific discoveries have changed the way they see the world."--Universe Today
