The Extreme Life of J. S. Haldane

I can hardly claim to be impartial about my Uncle's book but it really does sound interesting. The story of a pioneering Scottish inventor who developed the use of canaries for mines and gas masks in the trenches of the First World War. In particular, the book is going to focus on the sacrifice of self-experimentation by this Victorian gentleman. It's out in a couple of months I believe.
