About this Item

1 Years of Nobel Prizes provides a detailed statistical analysis of what is required to win a Nobel, why it sometimes takes a long time to collect the Award, and what the prizes have meant to human progress. After the Nobel Prizes are announced each October, do you ever wonder: ? How many scientists have won two Nobels during their career? ? Could Nobels run in families? ? Does luck ever play a role in a Nobel Award? ? Have any undeserving achievements ever been recognized? ? Have some deserving individuals been passed over? ? What do U.S. President?s Roosevelt and Wilson have in common? ? How many women have won the Nobel Prize in Economics? ? Have Alfred Nobel?s purposes in establishing the awards been met? ? Do some universities have an inside track on winning Nobels? ? Has immigration played a role in awarding the Nobel prize? ? Why have nearly 3% of the Nobel prizes gone to a group representing only about .2% of the world?s population? Learn the fascinating answers to these and other questions discovered by Baruch A. Shalev, an Israeli geneticist, who began wondering whether one of the principle findings of a lifetime of animal research might also apply to human beings. After his retirement, he selected Nobel prize-winners as a population universe to study. This book is the result of his investigations.
