Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"Reworking the Bench provides a splendid survey of the work of 15 historians of science, experts in different areas and periods of modern age, with many years of experience in this kind of historical investigation. ... the essays also contain interesting general epistemological results. ... research notes prove to be indispensable for disclosing the underlying aspects of research that are kept secret by the official accounts like published articles or autobiographical records." (Ariane Dröscher, History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences, Vol. 27, 2005)
