"Those who were not privileged to know or work with Robert Karplus have Robert Fuller and his collaborators to thank for this volume, which gives the reader a sense of what it was like to work with someone for whom the discovery process was central to his world-view."
(Alan M. Portis, Professor Emeritus, Dept. of Physics, University of California, Berkeley)
"Bob Karplus was an outstanding scientist, visionary educator, and close friend. A colleague at Berkeley, Dr. Karplus inspired me to become active in elementary science teaching and reform during my career as a professor at Berkeley and Calvin College. His inspiration continues to drive my work in Congress, and his groundbreaking ideas serve as the foundation for my science education legislation. Read this book; it will help you make science come alive for America's children."
