Sinossi:

"President Roosevelt rated Count Rumford, along with Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, as 'the greatest mind America has produced' and, through his inventions, philanthropy, and the foundation of the Royal Institution Rumford brought more benefit to mankind than most men of his age. Yet, though knighted by George III, he was vilified by Cobbett, ridiculed by Gillray and Cruickshank, and died almost alone. What is the real story of Count Rumford?" "This biography tells the story of Rumford's life, from his birth as plain 'Benjamin Thompson' into a poor farming family in Massachusetts in 1753, to international renown, and lonely death. Scientist, soldier, statesman and spy, his is a tale of adventure, intrigue, ambition and lust for life. Two hundred years after the founding of the Royal Institution, this book recognizes Rumford's unique place in science history and unravels the story of this perplexing and complex man."--BOOK JACKET.
