In writing for Decoded Science, I found I was drawn to the stories of those who - despite seminal accomplishments - were not acknowledged by their peers, and remain, for the most part, unknown to the general public. This book is about six such individuals. It is not meant to be a comprehensive list, but a representation of those scientists and others who do great things, but do not receive the recognition they deserve.

I wish to thank Victoria Nicks, founder and chief editor, for her support and encouragement. Without her, there would be no eBook.

This book is dedicated to my wife, Pat, for all the years of love and support.
