The author of Tomorrow's Cures Today? Donald Forsdyke, is professor of biochemistry at Queen's University, Ontario, Canada, having doctorates in medicine and biochemistry. His basic research record includes work in DNA sequencing, genetics, evolution, leukemia, and AIDS. This volume updates and expands on a number of previously published essays. Chapters have catchy but not always informative titles.

This review is about Forsdyke's observations and recommendations relative to how granting agencies fund research. To present and critique the author's thoughts, I adopt the imaginary interview format he effectively uses in two of the book's 14 chapters. My title is: "Author Debates Thesis with Reviewer."
