A planetary scientist working on human rights issues? A bird brain researcher hosting a radio show? In this chapter, the authors present vignettes of real scientists who found themselves traveling unique career paths that put them in jobs they didn’t necessarily expect. Tracing their career aspirations from childhood through their college years and beyond, the vignettes demonstrate how our lives, educational experiences, and training teach us skills that prepare us for a career path that is uniquely suited for each person. These scientists offer advice for students who might wish to follow in their footsteps. This sample chapter also includes the Table of Contents, Foreword, and Index.
