An insider account of the element race. “When Science Goes Wrong: Twelve Tales from the Dark Side of Discovery” by Simon Levay. Chapter 12 is dedicated to the Ninov scandal and has some interesting (and antagonistic) interviews with Ninov himself after the scandal. “The Disappearing Spoon” by Sam Kean. One chapter very briefly touches on the Ninov scandal. “Committee on the Formal Investigation of Alleged Scientific Misconduct by LBNL Staff Scientist Dr. Victor Ninov”.
