Dr Bishop's book, an amalgam of memoir, editorial, and science text, is, like his life and his shared Nobel Prize, an unexpected wonder.

Bishop begins with the phone call that results in his journey to Stockholm to receive the shared Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Harold E.

The recollection prompts him to delve into his past and reflect on choices, people, and aspects of science that have influenced him.
