A memoir of his life’s work – with personal anecdotes, and his unique personality and perspective, evident on every page. Like Dr. Ring – the book is a gem – and ought not be missed.
A fascinating read at the intersection of personal grief and loss – infused with both the spirit of science – and and the spirit of searching for answers to life’s greatest questions. Well worth reading for the science -and the stories alike. More on the 3 prestigious authors, below.
