About A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Stockholm: The Adrenaline-Fueld Adventures of an Accidental Scientist (Click here to purchase)
This rollicking memoir from the cardiologist, turned legendary scientist and winner of the Nobel Prize, revels in the joy of science and discovery. Dr. Robert Lefkowitz is known for being a larger- than-life character: a modest, often self-deprecating, always entertaining raconteur. When he received the Nobel Prize, the press corps in Sweden covered him intensively, describing him as “the happiest Laureate.” From his time in the public health corps with Dr. Anthony Fauci to his work as a cardiologist and his extraordinary transition to biochemistry, which led to his Nobel Prize, Dr. Lefkowitz has ignited passion and curiosity as a fabled mentor and teacher. But it's all in a day's work, as Lefkowitz reveals in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Stockholm.
