As described by author Matthew Cobb, this small crew of history makers appear on the surface to be more eccentric than gifted: The list includes a poet keen on vipers- a shopkeeper with an unhealthy interest in his own sperm- a mystical student obsessed with insects- a bright young doctor loved by his friends and hated by his rivals- and a future saint who laid the foundations of neurology, geology, and crystallography. Cobbs Generation tracks this unlikely band of advanced thinkers as they swept away millennia-old ideas about the process of reproduction.
