Editor reviews

Though several decades have passed since this book's publication, there is still at its core a riveting tale of discovery and pursuit. Anatomy of a Scientific Discovery is an in-depth look into the world of pharmaceutical research and scientific rivalries. Noah Michael Levine's performance is a treat. Levine is able to clearly explain the book's more difficult scientific details with ease while still relating the suspense and intrigue that surrounded this race for groundbreaking medical technology.

Summary

A true scientific pause-resister that traces a remarkable scientific breakthrough (the isolation of endorphins in the brain) as dedicated scientists race - not only with their fellow scientists - but against time and the profit hungry giant pharmaceutical companies. This audiobook chronicles the fascinating discovery of endorphins, the body's natural painkiller.

A fly on the wall view

A wealth of details about the nitty gritty or mundane lives of scientists And their narcissism.
Vast amount of details of cut throat competition that occurs in pursuit of scientific truths.
I felt like the fly on the walls of research scientists ( call them detectives) inter-sanctums.
