Editorial Reviews

Review

"Any research scientist should find this book interesting. Many issues encountered such as national security related academic censorship, university-industrial contractual relationships, and international patent rights, are provocative and timely. This book would be entertaining supplemental reading for students in courses in organic chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, microbiology, or the history and sociology of science." Science Books & Films

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had high expectations here, but Sheehan just talks about how great he is. Not much about the chemistry of synthesis, more about the politics of it.
