Welcome to some of the most weird and wonderful experiments ever conducted in the name of science—“Perfect summertime reading—preferably with a friend nearby who can be constantly interrupted with unsettling facts.” —The Daily Mail (UK )
Benjamin Franklin was a pioneering scientist, leader of the Enlightenment and a founding father. But perhaps less well known is that he was also the first person to use mouth-to-mouth to revive an electric shock victim. Odder still, it was actually mouth-to-beak on a hen that he himself had shocked.
Filled with similar stories, Alex Boese's Electrified Sheep is packed with eccentric characters, irrational obsessions and extreme experiments. Watch as scientists attempt to nuke the moon, wince at the doctor who performs a self-appendectomy and catch the faint whiff of singed wool from an electrified sheep. Wildly entertaining, it is the perfect follow-up to the international bestseller Elephants on Acid.
