Pressestimmen"BBC Focus magazine"
"Milgram's notorious study forms the centrepiece of this outstanding biography - and rightly so, given its continued importance in understanding such horrors as the torture of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib. But as author Thomas Blass makes clear, Milgram pioneered other major areas of research, including the famous 'Small World' effect...Blass does a fine job of weaving together Milgram's life and science, revealing a portrait of a genius who, ironically enough, had real problems with authority."
