Taylor Pratt Posted almost 3 years ago How can a talented teenager prepare himself for a scientific career? What do you scientists recommend? (Personal experiences, please). Carl Djerassi's Cantor's Dilemma is a novel that talks about how scientists and researchers can promote and further their work. It does have some adult content--I don't remember it describing sex but sex is implied. However, someone looking to go into the scientific field may find this book useful for understanding the politics that do happen.
