Über diesen Titel


Peter Medawar was an extremely succesful scientist who won the Nobel Prize in 1960. Nine years later, at the age of 54, he was crippled by a cerebral haemorrhage. This is his widow's story of her life with Sir Peter. It provides an insight into the life of a significant 20th-century scientist, and is an interesting companion to his own autobiography, "Memoir of a Thinking Radish".

From Library Journal:

In addition to being a Nobel Prize-winning scientist whose work helped pave the way for modern skin and transplant surgery, Sir Peter Medawar, says his widow in this loving memoir, was also a philosopher, writer, teacher, administrator, opera lover, and admirable human being. After suffering a stroke in 1969, Medawar slowed down, but continued his life work. The chapters that cover the years up to Medawar's stroke--his student years, his rise to professorship, the hardships of the war years in England, and his early research with rodents--are the more interesting, however, and you have to admire someone who modestly "acknowledged that any fame he had achieved had been made possible by climbing onto the shoulders of mice." Recommended for popular science collections.
