Few months ago, while we were still in pandemic lockdown, I heard from my friend and colleague Karl Deisseroth that he loved writing and was about to publish a book about his personal experience as a psychiatrist and neuroscientist. He was kind enough to send me a preprint, and I was immediately taken by both the content and the style of the book. Several beautifully written vignettes take the reader through his often poignant emotional experience as an emergency psychiatrist. In this book, Deisseroth shares his scientific journey developing and using approaches, such as optogenetics that have revolutionized modern neuroscience.
I am really looking forward to discus this book with Karl as part of the Science Books Talks series @HarvardBooks
