Don’t Be Such a Scientist: Talking Substance in an Age of Style

Don’t Be Such a Scientist: Talking Substance in an Age of Style, Second Edition by Randy Olson
English | PDF,EPUB (True)| 2018 | 250 Pages | ISBN : 1610919173 | 7.16 MB

When Randy Olson first described his life-changing encounter with an acting teacher in Don’t Be Such a Scientist, it seemed like the world of science was on the cusp of gaining new respect in the public eye. Through his writing, speaking, and films, Olson challenged scientists to toss out jargon in favor of a more human approach, bringing Hollywood lessons to the scientific community.
