Summary

From seventeenth-century anatomist William Harvey to twentieth-century lightning rod Sigmund Freud, countless researchers, physicians, and scientists have found themselves--and their work--at the center of raging disputes that have destroyed careers and lives. In this captivating follow-up to his acclaimed Great Feuds in Science, Hal Hellman tells the entertaining stories of the most heated and important of these disputes. Highlighting both famous (Sabin vs. Salk) and lesser-known (Galvani vs. Volta) clashes, he offers a front-row seat at the signal bouts of medical history.
