Book Title: Lucky Strikes Again

Author: Robert W. Lucky

Book Description:

This entertaining collection of astute essays by one of AT&T Bell Laboratories' more famous engineers, reminds me of the challenges of trying to do great engineering work in a corporate setting. The author is someone I greatly admire--a world-class researcher who was successful in a major corporation, and a man of letters.

I also have several connections to the book--I worked at Bell Labs around the time that this book was published, and I have a very close connection to the publisher, IEEE Press, having served on its editorial board just after Lucky Strikes Again was published.
