4 years ago, Professor Larry Smith gave a TEDx talk about the pursuit of great careers. The complexity of the topic sent many in the audience to swarm him with more questions. So the professor wrote this book in response to help those eager seekers.

During my meetings with professor Smith, he comes across knowledgeable and caring of his students, ready to challenge, cajole, but also to nurture. I'm glad he's written the book and look forward to reading it!

"When Obama decided to challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2007, she didn’t initially register the scope of the threat, because her young opponent, while charismatic, lacked an obvious means to raise real money. Clinton had locked down most of the big Democratic donors. Silicon Valley was an exception. In the early to mid-’90s, when her husband ran for president, the Internet boom and the great fortunes it would yield still lay ahead. By the time Obama came along, however, a prosperous class of technology workers had arisen and become radicalized against George W. Bush and the Iraq War.
Three factors came together in Silicon Valley to power Obama’s campaign past Clinton and to the White House. First, she neglected to cultivate this major new source of wealth, leaving it to her opponent. Second, the McCain-Feingold campaign-finance law weakened the power of the large-dollar donors whom Clinton and the Democrats relied on to write big checks, putting a premium instead on those who could bring in lots of smaller checks. Third, and most important, Silicon Valley entrepreneurs recognized that social-media networks such as Facebook and LinkedIn, just then taking off, could be usefully applied to political fundraising."

Toksook Bay on Alaska’s Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta is one of several Yup’ik Eskimo communities in a region so remote that many villages can be reached only by plane or snowmobile. During the 20th century, Christian missionaries pressured the Yup’ik to abandon much of their culture, but one foreign import – basketball – became an integral part of local life. Today, the Coastal Conference high-school basketball tournament brings western Alaska’s Yup’ik ...

Mukherjee argues that in the past century, our model for curing a disease has been to use medicine to kill the pathogens that cause a disease, a model formed and given strength by the success of the antibiotics revolution. But this model has limits in its power for some form of degenerative disease such as organ failures and cancer.

He posits that a shift in paradigm or an additional model, of studying the cell and its environmental context to cultivate it through areas such as stem cells research, is necessary and useful for the well being of an individual.
