Book Description:

C. P. Snow's book portrays the career of a young scientist in the early part of the 1900s. It is one of the most accurate and compelling novels that portray to non-scientists (or budding scientists) the nature of scientific research, motivation, and joys of research as well as ethical dilemmas and disappointments. My father introduced the book to me as a way of encouraging my interest in science.
