[The book is an] illustration of how science works. Scientists don't simply have the truth handed to them. They dream up wild ideas and then fight for them tooth and nail, while other scientists try to show that they're wrong. [In the book, the author] has provided [an] account of both the science and the scientists.-Dust jacket.
