Format: Paperback
An excellent novel and fun to read. For those of us in science, I believe you will truly enjoy it, and find many characters you have met along the career pathway to tenure. Didn't put it down and read it in a day.

Format: Paperback
Matter Over Mind by Steven Caplan is one of those rare books that brings you so deep into the mind of a fascinating character that you don't ever want to leave. In addition to providing a fast-paced story full of angst, humor, romance, and heart-breaking flashbacks, Caplan skillfully coaxes us into an elevated realm where it's impossible not to ponder provocative issues we all face - or should face. And to top it off, Matter Over Mind has an ending that will leave you breathless. Highly recommended!
