Don’t you miss a president who values science and scientists? (As if there weren’t a billion other reasons to miss Barack Obama.) But here is Obama with Thomas H. Haines, the co-author with Mindy Lewis, of the book, A Curious Life, which chronicles the story of how he went from an orphanage to the founder of the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, a medical school designed to bring in low-income and minority students. In other words, and I can’t believe I have to say this, someone who find solutions that elevate people instead of calling them less than human, and that address other problems of the world and life at the same time.
“A remarkable story of one man’s epic rise from humble roots to the highest echelons of science and academia. Not just a beautifully told tale of perseverance, courage, and altruism, but a love letter to the city that gave the author his shot and the fascinating artists, activists, and scientists in his circle.” — Ed Boland, Author of the New York Times Bestseller The Battle for Room 314
