From quack medical devices that supposedly heal with mysterious powers, to the role luck and intuition have played in discovering some of our most effective and widely used drugs, Max Sherman’s From Alzheimer's to Zebrafish: Eclectic Science and Regulatory Stories is a fascinating and intriguing exploration of the quirky side of science.

Sherman is the author of more than 100 professional publications and brings his knowledge of the regulatory profession and little-known scientific facts together in this fast-paced and educational publication.

From “Spiders: Vile, But Valuable”:

“Dragline silk is several times stronger than steel, on a weight-by-weight basis, but a spider’s dragline is only about one tenth the diameter of a human hair. The movie “Spider-Man” drastically underestimates the strength of silk; real dragline silk would not need to be nearly as thick as the strands deployed by the web-swinging hero.”

Broaden your understanding of the eccentricities of science with this fascinating book.

Who should use this publication?

This is an informative, enjoyable read for individuals involved in the fields of medicine and science and those with curious minds.
