Uncle Tungsten

Postby uncle janko » Thu Jul 27, 2006 8:30 pm

No, not a relative of mine, but a wonderful book by neurologist Oliver Sacks about his boyhood in a science-talented family, the Blitz and evacuation to a horrid Dickensian school, yes, a real Uncle Tungsten, and best of all: dampers and cuttlefish. Even a science dodo (c'est moi) found this hugely interesting and in places screamingly funny.
Doing good, doing well, raising hope and raising hell. Janko Shave.
