From the Workshop of Discoveries

I read this out of curiosity after looking up the history of chemical transmission of signals in the nervous system, and enjoyed it very much: Otto Loewi's "From the Workshop of Discoveries".

The anecdotes about scientific discoveries are wonderful, and he spread interesting insights about medicine, education, science and life all over it. I'd recommend reading at least the first two sections, and the third if you're interested in more detailed descriptions of hormones.
