Product Description

Review

'Hodgkin comes across in this enjoyable book as a genial and humane scientist passionately devoted to his research for its own sake both before and after being awarded his Nobel prize.' M. F. Perutz, Nature

'A masterly exposition of his life's work.' Sir Bernard Katz, New Scientist

Book Description

In this autobiography, the scientist Alan Hodgkin, charts the balance of chance and design in his own life. A chance observation on a frog nerve led him to a Trinity Fellowship in Cambridge and a year at the Rockerfeller Institute in New York, to the Nobel Prize in 1963, and ultimately to Presidency of the Royal Society.
