Muwahahahaha! Dr. Frankenstein. Marie Curie. Dr. Moreau. Captain Nemo. They're the most fascinating minds of all time--and now a science guru has teamed up with an expert in human psychology to coax them out of their laboratories and onto the analyst's couch. Real and fictional, famous and infamous, crazy and just crazily driven, these brilliant men and women exhibit a list of neuroses almost as impressive as their extraordinary accomplishments. At last, you can explore their early fixations, their ambitions, their successes and failures, and the particular quirks that have granted each induction into the Mad Scientist Hall of Fame, including: Dr. Evil: Megalomaniacal doctor with antisocial personality disorder (and pathological dislike of his own son, Scotty)Nikola Tesla: Real-life mad scientist with obsessive compulsive disorder (and he talked to aliens) Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde: Brilliant doctor gone bad, suffering from multiple personality disorder (and a penchant for strong chemical cocktails) Lex Luthor: Villain and supergenius with manic mood disorder (and premature baldness) Witty, illuminating, and thoroughly entertaining, this one-of-a-kind book offers irrefutable proof that success, super-intelligence, and a mantelpiece full of Nobel prizes is no guarantee of sanity. Praise for Daniel H. Wilson 'Daniel H. Wilson and Anna C. Long have made an exhaustive study of the evil mind. It is complete, pulls no punches, and reveals secrets that have hitherto remained hidden. It is for these reasons that I must liquidate them. Great book!' --Mike Myers, aka Dr. Evil from Austin Powers 'Forget about John Connor--it's Daniel H. Wilson who is going to save us from the Terminators.' --Forbes on How to Survive a Robot Uprising 'A tribute to the far-fetched ideas that often drive progress.' --Erik Sofge, Popular Mechanics, for Where's My Jetpack? Daniel H. Wilson, Ph.D. earned a degree in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University and is a contributing editor to Popular Mechanics magazine. He has been featured in the New York Times and Wired, as well as on Tech Nation with Dr. Moira Gunn and Countdown with Keith Olberman. Anna Long, Ph.D. is a graduate of the University of Washington's Child Clinical Psychology program. 3
