The Inner World of Scientists

Edited by Lewis Wolpert and Alison Richards

  • Not technical--these interviews focus on human face of science: it's energy and imaginative richness, the sensations of frustration, love, despair, and enchantment. It's about what makes scientists tick, in their own words.
  • At the same time, it gives a revealing look at how science is practiced--the student-mentor relationship, the competition between colleagues, the occasional fudging of results
  • Includes photographs of all the scientists interviewed for the book
  • Anyone interested in the creative process will find this book a joy to read
