Wilson, University Professor Emeritus, Harvard University and author of Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge.

This book gives the personal side to scientific investigation. Authors describe their thought processes and efforts to develop the experimental method that led to their discoveries. They are timely discoveries.

From the title, it's pretty clear that this is an assemblage of essays, and there need not be any continuity. However, this just feels that there could really be an introduction and conclusion section to round things out since the essays are at least interconnected enough to merit appearing in the same book.
