Scientists have a reputation for being focused on their work-and maybe even dull. But take another look. Did you know that it's believed that Galileo was scolded by the Roman Inquisition for sassing his mom? That Isaac Newton loved to examine soap bubbles? That Albert Einstein loved to collect joke books, and that geneticist Barbara McClintock wore a Groucho Marx disguise in public? With juicy tidbits about everything from favorite foods to first loves, these scientists are revealed as creative, bold, sometimes eccentric-and anything but dull.
