Taylor Cline This book is not written to a lay audience. It's a collection of primary literature and as such is written to a reader with a profound base of chemistry and science. I've felt at times as a student that so much has changed in science in the past 200 years that we cram so much learning into the same four years as past generations have used. This cramming necessarily pushes some former teaching to the way side. Although these things are not essential to my research at hand I find that they are essential to my development as a scientist and my pursuit of becoming an independent researcher.
I also found it quite helpful to see the struggles and perseverance of the scientist of the past. They let me know that the struggle is part of the success.
