Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Once again, Gerald Weissmann, with a firm and easy knowledge of everyone who matters from Auden to Zola, bridges the space between science and the humanities, and particularly between medicine and the muses, with wit, erudition, and, most important, wisdom."—Adam Gopnik, author of Angels and Ages

Admired by Nobel prize–winning scientists and literary tastemakers alike, Weissmann will continue to amaze and beguile new and faithful readers as both a masterful commentator on contemporary culture and a transcendent intellectual historian.

 

Gerald Weissmann, Editor-in-Chief of The FASEB Journal, is the author, most recently, of Galileo’s Gout: Science in the Age of Endarkenment.

Synopsis:

"An absolute first-rate writer [on science and the arts]."--Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
