Seven Scientists Who Are Changing Our WorldBook - 2000
Anton (nonfiction writing and English, DePaul U.) examines the "scientific new wave" by profiling the work of seven researchers: gene hunter Craig Venture, neuroscientist Susan Greenfield, astronomer Geoffrey Marcy, immunologist Polly Matzinter, cosmologist Saul Perlmutter, ecologist Gretchen Daily, and evolutionist Carl Woese. Anton considers not only the people, but the process of discovery and the creative nature of scientific thought. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
