Robert Greenler is Emeritus Professor of Physics at the university of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where he has been a member of the faculty for the past 30 years. He has published eight research papers, given almost five hundred invited and contributed talks, and has received numerous awards, including selection as a Fellow to the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Greenler brings his many years of experience as an educator and scientist to his autobiographical book, Chasing The Rainbow: Recurrences In The Life Of A Scientist. In a highly personal, anecdotal, and engaging presentation, Greenler presents the reader with the human face of science as he touches on a wide spectrum of personalities, events, discoveries, and phenomena that influenced or enhanced our understanding of the natural world. Chasing The Rainbow is enthusiastically recommended reading for anyone aspiring to a science career or with an interest in how we explore the world around us through the means and investigatory frameworks of science.
