    One thought on “The Human Side of Science: Edison and Tesla, Watson and Crick, and Other Personal Stories behind Science's Big Ideas”

    1. ScienceThrillers review: The Human Side of Science, subtitled “Edison and Tesla, Watson and Crick, and other personal stories behind science’s big ideas,” is ‘lite’ history of science. Essentially this is a collection of mini-biographies of famous scientists, with an agenda. The agenda is to convey the messiness of doing science in real life. Personal conflicts between brilliant minds make good stories. Based on the many, many bits of biographical information contained in this book, su [...]

    2. Pro: It's a book about science and history that contains footnotes. Con: Many of the sources are entries or secondary, uncited web sources.

    3. Informative and entertaining with bits of wry humorSince Wiggins is a physicist and Wynn is a professor of chemistry with a keen interest in evolutionary biology you can be sure these guys are not going to gum up the science. And as far as I can tell they don’t. But job one here, make no mistake about it, is entertainment. Note the numerous cartoons by Sidney Harris adorning the text.I didn’t think the cartoons were all that great but I suspect Sidney Harris cartoons are an acquired taste mu [...]

    4. For me, the book was too high level, dare I say, superficial, in its treatment of these great men and women. The narrative was more descriptive than drawing any new conclusions about the supposed conflict between some of these philosophers/scientists and their scientific/industrial positions. I enjoyed some of the comparisons of competing ideas such as Democritus versus Aristotle on the notion of atoms; Isaac Newton and Robert Hooke’s rivalry rooted primarily in personal animosities; the feudi [...]

    5. Overall, enjoyable. Some overly simplistic depictions of how science works were troubling. Yet, the breadth of topics make it a possibly useful resource.

    6. Maybe 2 1/2 stars. Though I'm not yet finished with the book, the tone is pretty well established, so I have already decided what my opinion of it is. I keep wondering if it's supposed to be a junior high text, if I somehow grabbed a YA book by mistake. I think it would work quite well to introduce young people to these scientists and topics, and to point out that scientific discovery is no easy, single Eureka moment (usually). The tone of the book is very casual and the scientific descriptions [...]
