Book Of Interest: Ivan Pavlov: A Russian Life In Science By Daniel P. Todes

This is a new biography on Ivan Pavlov and is quite dense and very comprehensive. This book is based on interviews with surviving co-workers and family members as well as scientific materials from twenty-five archives. As I have stated previously, I am really enjoying reading biographies and memoirs of people I am vaguely acquainted with or have no knowledge of. I know very little of Pavlov but I look forward to delving into this.

Here are some reviews for you to look into:
