This fascinating new installment in the popular Lives of... series of collective biographies is full of juicy tidbits about history's greatest scientists.

 
Did you know that it’s believed Galileo was scolded for sassing his mom? That Isaac Newton loved to examine soap bubbles? That Albert Einstein loved to collect joke books, and that the geneticist Barbara McClintock wore a Groucho Marx disguise in public? With juicy tidbits about everything from favorite foods to first loves, the subjects of Lives of the Scientists: Experiments, Explosions (and What the Neighbors Thought) are revealed as creative, bold, and sometimes eccentric.
