Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Kary Mullis won the Nobel Prize for his invention of the polymerase chain reaction, a chemical procedure that allows scientists to "see" the structures of the molecules of genes. Mullis is no shy, socially inept bench chemist, though; on the contrary, he has led as big and full a life as possible, opening himself to experiences like hallucinogenic drugs, surfing, casually handling dangerous chemicals, and taking shots at the sacred cows of science. Dancing Naked in the Mind Field is Mullis's own chronicle of his adventures, from wooing countless women to possibly being abducted by aliens, and it's a funny, shocking tale indeed. This man certainly doesn't suffer from lack of self-esteem, and yet you might want him along on a trip to the astral plane, say, or a tour of the human genome. Mullis is a fascinating character and his autobiography will put to rest forever the stereotype of scientist as skeptical nerd. --Therese Littleton

I picked up this book because of my fascination with PCR and my desire to know more about the history of the discovery. Actually, this book has very little to do with the polymerase chain reaction (but Paul Rabinow's "Making PCR: A Story of Biotechnology" filled that gap nicely for me). Instead, Mullis gives us a glimpse into his mind. At times he's too open; I don't really care about his lust for women or his drug use, but he's always unabashedly honest. He could easily be described as crazy; he refuses to subscribe to scientifically orthodox views that HIV causes AIDS or that the human race is resposible for global warming. The real reason I think this book is a winner is his humor and his gift of storytelling. Even though this book is nothing like what I expected it to be, I enjoyed it, mostly because it's a fun read, and even scientists can have fun.

I first heard of Kary Mullis in 1994, when I read his Chemistry Nobel Prize acceptance speech in Angewandte Chemie, my favorite Chemistry journal. I was then still employed as a researcher with the company that gave us better living through chemistry. I ended up reading the multi-thousand word account of his speech three times, without pause. It was simply brilliant, yet hardly had a word of science in it! Instead, it focused on what it means to be alive and human. I read "Dancing Naked in The Mind Field" in two sittings when it arrived at my door a few weeks ago. It has much science in it, and a whole lot more of other things. It also deals with the excitement and challenges of living and being human. All of it is worth reading, re-reading, digesting, and learning. A more compact course in critical thinking does not exist. Nor a more humorous one. Dr. Mullis is one of those extremely rare human beings that truly can be classified as a genius. He is equally at home at the forefront of DNA research as he is on his surfboard, at a nightclub, or studying up on planetary motion and its relation to the diversity in human personalities. There is nothing too preposterous for him to rigorously investigate and often attempt, while there appear to be very few commonly accepted "truths" in which he cannot find some fundamental fallacy. These include "truths" handed to us from the dogmatic kingdom of post WWII science. His many anecdotes -- from his curious adventures as a boy to his often hilarious encounters as a world famous scientist -- leave the reader fluctuating between uncontrollable fits of laughter and a deeply serious concern for our over-regulated and blatantly unethical world.

Seeing a Nobel Laureate say, and write about, things like Kary Mullis is indeed refreshing. Mullis is an avid thinker, and shows that in his acceptance of drug use, and his inability to dismiss anything. Indeed a gem in the rough of scientists who are so close minded that they dismiss things like astronomy and other metaphysical principles. I, for one, and not saying that these are truth, but saying that throughout the book Mullis refuses to believe anything unless it has proof to back it up, which is a scientific methodology, and this is why he refuses to dismiss astrology as "wishful thinking". For the man who created PCR--one of the greatest breakthroughs in biochemistry and genetics--to be talking about such things as astrology, astral travel, and drug use, openly is an amazing phenomenon. At some points, yes, he sounds like Timothy Leary, and at others, Feynman.
Science is a close-minded profession, run by people who are close-minded. In many ways the science community of the world is no different from the church in its inability to consider the outlandish (i.e. Einstein): Kary Mullis is one of too few exceptions.
Dancing Naked in the Mind Field is an excellent book. In tandem with what Carl Sagan said about the book I would like to say that it should permeate schools and colleges alike. It should be read by anyone who is going into the sciences and has the patience, and the freedom to read it without disgust or feeling personal attack. I can think of many teachers, professors, and even religious leaders that I would like to see read this book: it MIGHT do them some good.
Bravo Dr. Mullis!

Few books have had a more immediate impact on my thinking than 'Dancing Naked in the Mind Field'. One minute you love the author and his amazing insights...and the next you hate him because he shatters many of your illusions about science & the world around you. By the end of the book you are thinking in a whole new way....Quite amazing !

For those of you who know Don Cherry, I can only compare Mullis with that legendary hockey personality. They both let you know exactly what they think, no holds barred. Mullis' autobiography is well written, fascinating, and even infuriating at times. The central theme seems to be, "don't believe everything you hear". As a research scientist myself, I must strongly echo that sentiment. There are usually (and I am not exaggerating when I say >75%, at least in my field of chemistry) errors in the reports of scientific matters in the media, even from such reputable services as AP and CNN.
Therefore, read this book, enjoy it, and don't believe any of it just because Mullis says it's so. Sure, I'll take his word for it if he says there's no definitive link between HIV and AIDS, but he didn't convince me atrology is real. Just mentioning these two diverse topics gives you a flavour for what it'll be like to enter the Mind Field.
