Summary
"If you think scientists are dull, boring eggheads in white coats who hang out in labs and don't have any friends... then you're wrong. The big brainiacs of history were off-the-chart smart, but that doesn't mean they were always right. They made mistakes, they argued, they performed strange experiments. They took risks, they broke the rules, they were dangerous. They were rebels"--
Summary
Examines how these scientists pushed the boundaries of known science by performing odd experiments, breaking rules, and making mistakes to discover the truth
