Spice in Science

    By

    Did you know that Thomas Edison was penniless and almost starving when he left for New York? Or, how once Charlie Chaplin confused Einstein? Or, how German physicist, Gustav Kirchoff, presented his banker with `gold from sun`? Spice in Science is an unusual book replete with interesting incidents, funny situations, memorable events and little known facts from the lives of scientists, researchers, inventors and mathematicians. Herein you will find no pungent formulae or esoteric ideas, simply a colourful embroidery of humorous stories and amusing anecdotes laced with unforgettable incidents from the fascinating lives of these great geniuses. This book does not contain the serious science from cloistered laboratories. Instead, it transmits the crackles of laughter that cracked up these labs sometimes in wonder, sometimes in mirth and sometimes in mysticism. From...CV Raman to Srinivas Ramanujan, Isaac Newton to Albert Einstein, Michael Faraday to Thomas Edison and Marie Curie to Guglielmo Marconi...this book has funnies and anecdotes on one and all. So, whether you are interested in science or only dig pure fun, Spice in Science is just the right book for you.
