If you think science is stuffy and dull, take a lesson from Pete Scholander. His life-long fascination with understanding nature led to adventures and misadventures, many of which he relates here in his autobiography. This entertaining book portrays the pursuit of science as a continuing adventure that many times provided Scholander with an excuse for mischief and fun. Enjoying a Life in Science also illustrates how much Scholander contributed to the present-day understanding of many natural processes.
