This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Benjamin Franklin was a pioneering scientist, leader of the Enlightenment and founding father of the USA. But perhaps less well known is that he was also the first person to use artificial respiration to revive an electric shock victim. Odder still, it was actually mouth-to-beak resuscitation on a hen that he himself had shocked.
Welcome to some of the most weird and wonderful experiments ever conducted in the name of science. Packed full of eccentric characters, irrational obsessions and extreme experiments, Electrified Sheep is the long-awaited follow-up to the bestselling Elephants on Acid. Watch as scientists attempt to blow up the moon, wince at the doctor who performs a self-appendectomy - and catch the faint whiff of singed wool from an electrified sheep.

A great book that I picked up at the airport, and which I got into immediately! This book looks at the strange, fascinating and humorous parts which science has driven people to do, such as the pig in bikini bay. I really enjoyed it and I highly recommend it!
