What can we learn when we study people over the years and across the course of their professional lives? Joseph C. Hermanowicz asks this question specifically about scientists and answers it here by tracking fifty-five physicists through different stages of their careers at a variety of universities across the country. He explores these scientists' shifting perceptions of their jobs to uncover the meanings they invest in their work, when and where they find satisfaction, how they succeed and fail, and how the rhythms of their work change as they age. An in-depth study of American higher education professionals told eloquently through their own words, Hermanowicz's keen analysis of how institutions shape careers will appeal to anyone interested in life in academia.
