About the Book

Scientists, Mathematicians, and Inventors provides biographies of 200 men and women who changed the world by leaving lasting legacies in the fields of science, mathematics, and scientific invention. It fills a gap in the biographical reference shelf by offering far more than basic facts about a scientist's life and work: each entry describes not only the immediate effects of the individual's discoveries, but also his or her impact on later scientific findings.
