The amazing sociobiologist Edward O. Wilson, Pulitzer prize winner for his book On Human Nature, writes a combined autobiography and academic career advice book. Nature magazine loves it and it’s poised to become a classic in academic circles. Wilson emphasizes passion, rather than extraordinary intelligence, as the crucial characteristic of a successful scientist in any discipline. His book is written in very accessible style (as opposed to the somewhat intimidating style of P.B. Medawar in his Advice to a Young Scientist), and should provide ample inspiration to undergraduates, PhD students and faculty. Wilson joins a famous collection of scientists that have made their career into an autobiography, including Kandel in his In Search of Memory and Richard Feynman in his Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman.
