it was ok
Read from August 24 to September 15, 2011

While some of these essays were interesting, I had hoped that they would be from a variety of scientists across the world, not just those connected in some way to MIT. I realize this book came about from an assignment given by the editor to her students at MIT, but I wish she had expanded her original idea and put out a call for any scientist to submit their own thoughts on their path to the field they are currently in.

Because this was only MIT people, it felt very elitist to me and it was a turn off. I also didn't care for the editor's extremely long-winded introduction and epilogue and skipped those.
