The Road to Stockholm: Nobel Prizes, Science, and Scientists
What sort of scientists become Nobel laureates? How are they chosen? Are there features common to them, and to their prize-winning research? Questions like these have long intrigued István Hargittai; seeking answers, he began interviewing Nobel laureates about their careers. For this book he interviewed some 70 laureates and about 70 other distinguished scientists. Written for a general readership, The Road to Stockholm illuminates the nature of scientific discovery, the Nobel Prize selection process, the factors common to award-winning research, and the effects of the Nobel Prize on science itself. Here are stories of scientists who overcame adversity and eventually won the prize; insights into the importance of the laureate’s mentor in earlier life and of the location where prize-winning research is carried out; and a variety of responses to the question, What first turned you on to science? No less fascinating are the well-publicized examples of deserving (in many eyes) scientists who were not awarded the Nobel Prize.
