The Genius Factory: The Curious History of the Nobel Prize Sperm Bank by David Plotz

When The Repository for Germinal Choice was started, it was meant to be a way to breed better humans by using sperm from Nobel Prize winners to impregnate MENSA women. What actually happened to the men who donated and the women who were impregnated is much more interesting than that.

An insightful look at what was intended to be an experiment in eugenics but became more of a study in nature vs. nurture.

Highly Recommended
