MEDIA REVIEWS
'This insightful book offers guidance toward an enhanced productive academic or professional scientific career ... a must-read for any professional in the geophysical community and for those pursuing studies in this field.' The Leading Edge
'... if you had only one book to recommend to a student I would suggest this one. It is all there: the tips that, if applied, will make you a good presenter, an inspiring communicator, a sought-after collaborator, and more.' Elements
'... the strength of Jansen's little book is its valuable lessons on how 'to sell yourself'. Developing a Talent for Science should be required reading for those who see scholarly work as preparing a 'sales pitch' and 'climbing their career ladder'.' Stanley Shostak, The European Legacy: Toward New Paradigms
