Mentioned in a Derek Lowe column. This is hard to find but nonetheless interesting; tales from the golden age of chemistry, when men were men and safety was a dirty word. If you know anything about chemistry, some of these anecdotes will cause your eyebrows to raise so much that they lift clear off your head and into the sky. Entertaining to read about, at a long remove; glad the world is no longer quite so blasé about this sort of thing.
