Reviews

"This is not only a study of Kreb's research, it is also a comprehensive biography of Kreb's personal as well as scientific life....comprehensive....excellent....Holmes gives a penetrating analysis of Kreb's mode of research, its strength and its limitations. These two volumes represent an extraordinary achievement. The story of both the man and the science is full and rewarding....these volumes, taken together, form one of the greatest of scientific biographies....I know of nothing in the least comparable with Holmes's achievement here, in its depth and breadth." --Nature "Volume 1 covers Krebs's early life and education, including the beginnings of his research career....Volume 2 covers the time from his arrival in England to publication of the paper on the citric acid cycle in 1937....These volumes have much to say to specialist and nonspecialist alike about the craft of history and the nature of twentieth-century science." --American Historical Review "In the second volume of this biography Holmes maintains a tone and emphasis equal to that which he established in the first. An important contribution to the literature on the creative process. A well-referenced study, recommended for advanced undergraduate through faculty." --Choice From reviews of Vol. 1: "In this large first volume of what will be a colossal biography, Holmes reconstructs the education and early career of a remarkable scientist with equally remarkable clarity, comprehensiveness, and detail....This magnificent biography demonstrates, as few books do, the intimate relations between personality and science." --Science "A remarkable and detailed account of a significant period in the development of biochemistry, reflected in the work of a major 'architect'..." --JAMA "Meticulous and superb scholarship-grounded in laboratory notebooks, correspondence, published scientific papers, biographical materials, and interviews...." --Journal of the History of Biology "This is not only a study of Kreb's research, it is also a comprehensive biography of Kreb's personal as well as scientific life....comprehensive....excellent....Holmes gives a penetrating analysis of Kreb's mode of research, its strength and its limitations.
