Editorial Reviews

In this timely, astute, and pivotal discussion, the author ... makes great use of pop culture, tying together Marcus Welby, M.D. and Star Trek references to Converse high top sneakers and the novels of Michael Crichton. She also employs a keen sense of humor throughout, which keeps the narrative grounded yet accessible and flexible, and concludes with a smart, multi-pronged strategy.
