Here is a biography of the great French chemist and crystallographer, Louis Pasteur, who invented the pasteurization process, identified microbes as a cause of infectious disease, and developed the first vaccine against rabies.

"From the lives of men who have marked their passage with a trail of enduring light, let us piously gather, for the benefit of posterity, every detail, down to the slightest words, the slightest acts calculated to reveal the guiding principles of their great souls." (Louis Pasteur)

Classically written, yet very informative

Beautifully read with clarity and motivation. For all those who enjoys exploring science history, this book is a must. Particularly interesting when it can relate many of the famous names in other fields, hence laying out a comprehensive view of science in particular and human history in broad sense.

A flamboyant love letter

An undisguised love letter to the French national hero written by an author incapable of critical analysis and prone to superlative praise.
