Product Description From Booklist Twenty-seven scientists credit a satisfying suite of epiphanies mentors teachers and books as reasons and inspiration for their career choices. Most remember their parents as being vital influences who enriched their childhoods with zoo and field trips and the like. And most contend that native intelligence is insufficient: mastering a subject is key. As crucial as hard work to becoming a scientist however is retaining one's impressionability. As one of Brockman's contributors remarks "My childhood continues." With bylines from world-famous scientists such as Freeman Dyson and Murray Gell-Mann these autobiographical stories will fully gratify the general science audience. Gilbert Taylor Copyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved Review “Fascinating . . . An invigorating debate.” – The Washington Post Book World “And intriguing collection of essays . . . full of comical and thought-provoking stories.” – Psychology Today “Quirky absorbing and persuasive in just the way that good stories are.” – Nature “In this superlative collection . . . scientists–who also happen to be splendid writers–discuss what first attracted them to careers in science. . . . Inspiring.” – Sci Fi Magazine “Revealing accounts and entertaining reading.” – Science News “Compelling . . . rather than revealing a secret formula that produces an adult scientist this collection proves just how disparate are the ingredients. . . . Idiosyncrasies are in the end what gives the collection its kick.” – Discover “Forget algebra camp–a scientist’s life can also begin with Gilligan’s Island or the James Bond movie Thunderball . . . Entertaining stories.” – Popular Science “[An] engrossing treat of a book . . . crammed with hugely enjoyable anecdotes.” – New Scientist From the Trade Paperback edition.
