Some brief overview of book

History will always remember the Edisons, Einsteins and Darwins: they succeeded in changing the world, and the world has repaid them by enshrining their names. But what of those others with similarly revolutionary and groundbreaking ideas who plummeted into oblivion? They are gone and forgotten, until now.

This title tells of the lives of 13 losers, who achieved great heights in their lifetimes, only then to meet crushing defeats.
