In Anatomy of a systematic Discovery, Jeff Goldberg describes Hughes and Kosterlitz’s lives sooner than, in the course of, and after their old and clinical leap forward. He additionally takes a glance on the larger photo, revealing the brutal festival among drug businesses to discover the way to profit from this huge discovery.

He was already seventy-three when his assay, using a tiny bit of twitching nerve tissue from the lower intestine of guinea pigs, demonstrated that there was opiate activity in a chemical fragment distilled from pig brains by his colleague John Hughes.
