They just are not properly defined at certain historical points, but we cannot and should not simply forget what has already been done in vain. That in itself is quite miraculous.

Experimente mit Menschen, sofern sie keinen irreversibeln psychischen oder physischen Schaden hinterlassen, auf freiwilliger Basis beruhen und sinnvolle sowie nutzbare Ergebnisse liefern werden dagegen noch lange unverzichtbar bleiben. I’m a sucker for a elphants book cover You might try to cast them off as twisted when you learn of their strange experiments.

Review: Elephants on Acid and Other Bizarre Experiments by Alex Boese – Telegraph

A complete edition of John James Audubon’s world famous The Birds of America, bound in linen and beautifully presented in a special slipcase. Be careful not to judge these people devoted to science too harshly.

The cover was cute because it had hippie like flowers on it, and I won’t deny it was partially the cover that made it so appealing while also the title of course promised interesting subject matter We had so many books that we had to get rid of a load of them, and so I pinched this one before it went to the charity shops.

If besides, the experiments lack any medical and scientific severe relevance, as apparently seems to be the case with some of the tests cited, there can be no question of tolerance or expediency.


Our civilization has reaped great benefits from these strange pursuits along with others like it. Jan 08, Sunsettowers rated it really liked it Shelves: Although there are many well known studies in this book, that might not be new or surprising to the scientifically aware, the author does an excellent job giving a complete picture surrounding a given experiment.

As an aside it is amazing how many over extrapolate their conclusions.

Aug 05, Jenbebookish rated it liked it Shelves: A book worth reading in fits and starts really, not one to read in one go. In the book, each vignette highlights a specific experiment. Elephants on Acid Alex Boese book reviews: Like a lil child, I’m still fascinated by colorful things!! Thus, both frightening and abysmal tests are performed in a similar way as harmless and smiling anecdotes, which is slightly inappropriate from the entertainment point of view. Have you ever wondered if a severed head retains consciousness long enough to see what happened to it?

Couldn’t leave it alone after reading that crazy blurb on the back cover. But it also learned me not to trick a If you’re a scientist, you’ll love this book.

I had to lock the book away in my car and promise over and over that it wasn’t elephxnts even tho it was! I found that many experiments, even if weird, were really interesting and offer very practical information about the human mind and human psychology.

Elephants on Acid: And Other Bizarre Experiments by Alex Boese

But it also learned me not to trick an elephant. However, being impartial, there are some interesting experiments in here, although the author offers little in terms of persepective, and I personally would have laid them out chronologically, to emphasise the progress or lack of made, and how views and approaches have changed.

This is really a 2. In Elephants on Acid, Alex Boese reveals to readers the results of not only this scientific trial but of scores of other outrageous, amusing, and provocative experiments found in the files of modern science. It’s worth having around, and great for picking up every now and again in between other more serious reads.

Books by Alex Boese. Besides, I am so loving the cover and that odd title and thinks that acod would look great in my living room library section. Jun 05, Neenee rated it liked it Shelves: However, being impartial, there are some interes Another chance pick up from Fopp: Dann ist es nur mehr krank und sinnlos. And this book was just meh. I’m so pissed off at myself that I even tried to read this book not once but three times.

Never ever trick an elephant. Perhaps it’s the lame attempt at humour from the author that qlex, or the slightly laborious writing style.

None were too thoroughly detailed and a lot left you googling for confirmation and accuracy.
