Reviews & endorsements
"This insightful book offers guidance toward an enhanced productive academic or professional scientific career … Developing a Talent for Science is a must-read for any professional in the geophysical community and for those pursuing studies in this field."
Andreas Rueger, The Leading EdgeSee more reviews
"… if you had only one book to recommend to a student I would suggest this one. It is all there: the tips that, if applied, will make you a good presenter, an inspiring communicator, a sought-after collaborator, and more."
"… the strength of Jansen’s little book is its valuable lessons on how "to sell yourself". Developing a Talent for Science should be required reading for those who see scholarly work as preparing a "sales pitch" and "climbing their career ladder"."
Stanley Shostak, The European Legacy: Toward New Paradigms
