Eureka! Discovering Your Inner Scientist

By Chad Orzel ’93. December 2014. Basic Books. By revealing the connection between the everyday activities that people do—solving crossword puzzles, playing sports, or even watching mystery shows on television—and the processes used to make great scientific discoveries, Orzel shows that if we recognize the process of doing science as something familiar, we will be better able to appreciate scientific discoveries and use scientific facts and thinking to help address the problems that affect us all.
