Description
 
Every year the Nobel Prize is awarded to the leaders in their respective fields. But what recognition is there for the scientific mind who attempted to feed Prozac to clams for sexual purposes? Where are the gongs for the genius who trained pigeons to discriminate between the paintings of Picasso & those of Monet?  How about ‘The Collapse of Toilets in Glasgow’ & the optimal way to dunk a biscuit? The “IgNobel Prizes” have changed all that, bestowing their award on the individuals whose achievements ‘cannot or should not be reproduced’. And here, from humor magazine the “Annals of Improbable Research,” comes the story behind these awards -- the research, the award winners, & their sometimes ungracious responses. Illustrations.
