When Science Goes Wrong by Simon LeVay
When Science Goes Wrong: Twelve Tales from the Dark Side of Discovery is a fascinating book. I saw the author a few weeks ago on Jon Stewart, which got me interested enough to check out the book. In these essays he describes what science looks like when it doesn't work the way you expect it, or when something goes awry. Really interesting stuff, and well-written, too.
