Overview
"John Nicholls' book is an unalloyed delight. It fills a niche in that it gives lay readers a great insight into the human side of science; research is done by real people, each with their own agenda, fancies and foibles. John has done a great service here in revealing the depth and breadth of 'characters' that inhabit the research world to which he himself has made such notable contributions. For those of us also in science, many will read this fine book and kick themselves for not having catalogued their own acquaintances and anecdotes. But really, John's cast of characters and stories will trump anything. He writes beautifully with a sense of wonder and pleasure at the strangeness that he has encountered in so many colleagues and collaborators, students and technicians." --David Miller, Physiology News "Proper scientific training has long been rooted in organized course work and structured laboratory practice. However, a considerable amount of education occurs beyond the classroom and work bench. In his short memoir, John G. Nicholls regales his readers with stories dating from his undergraduate studies in London to his experiences working abroad with international scientists. Pioneers of Neurobiology is not only a wonderful book for any student interested in pursuing a degree in neuroscience, but also a heartwarming read for the seasoned scientist." --Danielle Gerhard, Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine
