This is not a superficial collection of wild experiments. This book concisely covers the background of each experiment; human frailty, foibles and also insight brought into these experiments; and finally the conclusions taken away. Each one can be treasured, be it for brilliance in planning or execution, or outlandish absurdity, or a combination of the two. It is enjoyable to read, and I feel empowered to be more thoughtful in the experiments I get to do in my job. I have a related quote that may be relevant: A theory is something nobody believes, except the person who made it. An experiment is something everybody believes, except the person who made it. - Albert Einstein Although not all the experimenters in the book were as thoughtful as Einstein! But read it! I read a few pages at the store and had to bring it home.
