 About the Book 

Darwin says that we descended from the monkeys. He looks like a monkey himself- that is why Nobel kept tinkering with dynamite- the result--he got his house blown up, his father maimed and his brother killed. Serves him right. The crank. EinsteinMoreDarwin says that we descended from the monkeys. He looks like a monkey himself- that is why Nobel kept tinkering with dynamite- the result--he got his house blown up, his father maimed and his brother killed. Serves him right. The crank. Einstein says that with appropriate speed of travel one can slow down time, implying that the father, if he traveled fast enough, will end up younger than his son. That is Jewish science for you. Von Braun tried to send a rocket into orbit- but the thing fizzled on the launching pad. All that money up in smokes. Isnt he German? Pasteur says to prevent disease, you have to inject the disease into the person. Oh The French. Watson and Crick played with models of molecules and now say that they know the mechanism of cell replication, and hence the secret of life. Get the English and American to work together, and that is what they come up with. Pooh Initial reactions are thus not all positive. But then Science keeps marching on- and as we reap the benefits, our lives get richer, fuller and more enlightened. This is an interesting compilation of the history of major discoveries chosen from major fields of Science- and the corollary to each chapter updates the status of the ensuing science. A boon to teachers, students and the public at large.
