A very interesting book that instead of presenting you with something you already know takes you back behind the scenes. You are introduced to the warren of the Smithosonian and the various people who are the actual backbone whether it seems to be someone with a very interesting job or what we would call a secondary job or even what we may perceive as a job that is so boring that we wouldn't want to touch it even if we were paid for it. And as they say while it holds true it takes a village.
