Summary
From a young age, Peter Mark Roget--polymath, eccentric, synonym aficionado--longed for order in his chaotic world. His father's premature death and the mental illness of his mother and sister threatened to plunge him into the darkness of his own madness. And so, at the age of eight, he started making lists. From the heavenly bodies to animals, vegetables, and minerals. Despite hardships, Roget Roget lived a colorful life, full of unexpected twists and discoveries: he narrowly avoided jail in Napoleon's France, assisted famed physician Thomas Beddoes by personally testing the effects of laughting gas, invented the slide rule, and of course, brought life to the book that would become synonymous with synonyms
