About the Author:

Robert Kanigel is a professional science writer. His recent book, The Man Who Knew Infinity: A Life of the Genius Ramanujan, was a national bestseller and National Book Critics Circle Award finalist for biography in 1992.

From Library Journal:

Corporate mentors are well known. Less visible are the "mentor chains" that from generation to generation produce eminent scientists. Kanigel traces one such chain in neuroscience and neuropharmacology that accounts for such resarchers as Steve Brodie, Julius Axelrod, Sol Snyder, and Candace Pertall brilliant scientists whose relations are characterized by camaraderie, envy, and frustration. The author's thesis is that participation in elite science through mentor chains provides more than grants, access to laboratories, and awards. It instills the ability to critically and creatively strike at the heart of a research question. An exciting story of discovery that evenly handles the inevitable conflicts. Recommended. Michael D. Cramer, Virginia Polytechnic Inst. & State Univ. Lib., Blacksburg
Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc.
