Paul Lauterbur and the Invention of MRI is a fascinating story, told by the loving wife of a major contributor. Science reports are seldom just right or wrong but live from personal impressions that bring colors into the picture. This account of a major advancement in medicine offers a rare glimpse into the inner workings of science progress. -- Richard R. Ernst, ETH, Zurich, Switzerland; winner of the 1991 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
M. Joan Dawson is Associate Professor Emerita in the School of Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She was married to Paul Lauterbur from 1984 until his death in 2007.
The book reads well and has something for everyone; I would particularly recommend it to young researchers.-Chemistry World
