Description
"The author of Everything Bad Is Good for You provides an entertaining account of the 18th-century scientist and radical Joseph Priestley's monumental discovery that plants restore 'something fundamental'—what we now know as oxygen—to the air. Johnson also offers a clear-sighted and intelligent exploration of the conditions that are propitious to scientific innovation, such as the availability of coffee and the unfettered circulation of information through social networks. The members of the networks that Priestley belonged to, including Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, provide Johnson with some of his strongest material."—The New Yorker
