What To Do When Your Spouse Wins The Nobel Prize

This is just plain hysterical.

Anita Laughlin, the wife of Nobel Laureate Robert Laughlin, has written a book titled "Reindeer with King Gustaf: What to Expect When Your Spouse Wins the Nobel Prize".

....a light-hearted, behind-the-scenes account of what this sort of thing can do to a family.

One occasionally sees a spouse's-point-of-view title on the bookshelf, but this is likely the first such endeavor regarding the Nobel Prize. Says Laughlin: "It demystifies, clarifies and humanizes the Nobel experience."

The report also pointed to Anita Laughlin's website that includes, among other things, a hilarious video where both husband and wife "re-enacts" receiving the phone 2:00 am phone call from Stockholm. Don't miss that one!
