Reviews
"Mightily entertaining."
--Kirkus

"This collective biography is perfectly suited to thematic research as well as to reading for pleasure."
--Booklist

"Another wonderful addition to the series, detailing common knowledge and little-known facts about historical figures."
--School Library Journal

"Yes! Krull and Hewitt are back with another of those books, the eighth entry in their delightful Lives of . . . series."
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Eight short, lively chapters introduce twenty influential scientists of the modern era. Krull emphasizes memorable, and often humorously indiosyncratic, character traits."
--The Horn Book Magazine
