Synopsis

From the back of the book: Louis Pasteur once said the scientific process, "In the field of experimentation, chance favors the prepared mind." Each entry in the GIANTS OF SCIENCE series reveals just how the minds of history's greatest scientists were actually prepared. As each story unfolds, it become clear that great scientists -- no matter what their field -- cannot achieve success without failure, determination, creativity and a dose of luck. Today, everybody knows the term "ecology." Before Rachel Carson published "Silent Spring" in 1962, few Americans knew what the word meant or realized that deadly chemicals could pose a threat to life. Carson was a great science writer whose pioneering work gave birth to the environmental conciousness we have today.
