Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Each of 11 interviews begins with a photo and a summary of the scientist's career and interests. Questions and answers follow, the interviewer keeping his presence to a minimum and letting his subjects talk. Among those interviewed are: Etienne-Emile Baulier (inventor of the abortion pill), Richard Dawkins ("selfish genes"), Bert Sakmann (cellular signalling), Norman Packard (chaos theory). Intended for the lay audience. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
