Sixties: The Decade of Rebellion by Phil Edwards
... This innovation led to the development of the hand-held pocket calculator by Texas Instruments, though calculators did not come into general use until the early seventies. But the world didn’t understand how much science and technology was really going to change their lives – until Neil Armstrong spoke to the world from the surface of the Moon in 1969.

The Notebooks Of Leonardo Davinci by Kevin Wilson
... Leonardo kept notebooks as a private journal, intentionally censoring his work from those who might irresponsibly use it (the tank, for instance).

... It relies on testimonials and success stories rather than scientific proof Dr. Sears says "Let me be a little more specific about the rewards you'll reap from staying in the Zone" ("Enter the Zone", p. 4).

... small article in an American academic journal (Thorp E.O. "A favourable strategy for twenty-one", 47, 110-112, (1961)). And despite the small size of the article and, consequently, an extremely condensed form of persentment, made it comprehensible for rather a narrow group of professionals, one can be sure that a number of American scientists and their friends certainly "improved" their material situation (owners of gambling houses were unlikely to read scientific magazines at that time).
