Allegra Goodman: Intuition ; (2006)

 

Publisher’s description:

“A charismatic doctor and a rigorous scientist are co-directors of a cancer research lab. They demand nothing less than complete dedication and obedience from their young protégés. In this high-pressure setting, one young man’s experiments begin to show exciting results. At first the entire lab is giddy with expectation. But his colleagues become suspicious, and soon an all-too-public controversy engulfs the lab and everyone in it…
Intuition is a rich and compelling human drama about the quest for ‘truth’, that asks: who can you trust when you aren’t even sure you can trust yourself?”
