Science writer Luntz provides profiles of over 70 Australian scientists from, as the title suggests, diverse fields of study. His criteria for inclusion is as diverse: the scientists he describes are engaged in inspiring, innovative, strange, or simply interesting work. They are archaeologists and paleontologists, astronomers and space scientists, computer scientists and chemists, neuroscientists and zoologists, to name several but not all of the categories. The book will interest students interested in science as a profession and general readers who want to know more about what real, live scientists are up to. Distributed in the US by Stylus.
