9780871403773: Letters to a Young Scientist
Review:

"Edward O. Wilson, the evolutionary biologist who has studied social behavior among insects and humans, offers advice to aspiring researchers...A naturalist at heart, he plays down technology, math, even intelligence, proposing that a good scientist should be 'bright enough to see what can be done but not too bright as to become bored doing it.'...delivers deep insights into how observation and experiment drive theory." -- Jascha Hoffman "The eminent entomologist, naturalist and sociobiologist draws on the experiences of a long career to offer encouraging advice to those considering a life in science... Glows with one man's love for science." "I want to express my gratitude. Thank you for reminding me and thousands of others why we became -scientists. Your book Letters to a Young Scientist is first and foremost a book about passion and the delight of discovery..." -- Bill Streever "In this fund of practical and philosophical guidance distilled from seven decades of experience, Wilson provides exactly the right mentoring for scientists of all disciplines-and all ages... This is no pompous, deeply philosophical treatise on how great ideas develop. Wilson shares his simple love for ants and their natural history, revelling in them without hesitation. Everything else follows." "Inspiring... Ought to be on the shelves of all high school and public libraries."

Review:

"He [Wilson] makes science accessible and enthralling. His Letters to a Young Scientist is a joy." Patrick Neale, Booksellers' Choice: May 2013, The Bookseller "...offers an array of poignant and often philosophical messages aimed at inspiring and enthusing the next generation of scientists." Geographical Magazine "Skilfully and elegantly written..." New Scientist "Appealing and inspiring, rather than authoritative and formulaic, because it focuses on the variable nature of our motivations and origins, this book traces all experience, progress and directions back to raw curiosity." Times Higher Education "His [Wilson's] lifelong study has unveiled hugely significant facts about the fascinating social structure of ants and life generally, and he has written beautifully about it." The Guardian "...engaging and inspiring short book." The Biologist "... a great book that will be an inspiration for any young person considering whether a career in natural sciences is the path to follow." Nexus Institute "An approachable amalgam of hard-headed advice and high-minded inspiration." The Independent "This short and elegant book is the perfect gift for that nerdy young relative wondering if they can make it as a scientist." Chris Potter, Science Books of the Year 2013, The Sunday Times

Descripción WW Norton Co, United States, 2013. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 183 x 122 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Edward O. Wilson has distilled sixty years of teaching into a book for students, young and old. Reflecting on his coming-of-age in the South as a Boy Scout and a lover of ants and butterflies, Wilson threads these twenty-one letters, each richly illustrated, with autobiographical anecdotes that illuminate his career-both his successes and his failures-and his motivations for becoming a biologist. At a time in human history when our survival is more than ever linked to our understanding of science, Wilson insists that success in the sciences does not depend on mathematical skill, but rather a passion for finding a problem and solving it. From the collapse of stars to the exploration of rain forests and the oceans depths, Wilson instills a love of the innate creativity of science and a respect for the human being s modest place in the planet s ecosystem in his readers.
