Book Club: Intuition
Intuition, an intricate mystery full of rich human drama, is set in the high-stakes atmosphere of a cancer research institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts. An ambitious but down-on-his-luck postdoctoral researcher suddenly obtains results that look too good to be true: the virus he has injected into cancer-riddled mice appears to be melting away their tumors. His girlfriend, another postdoc in the same lab, comes to suspect he has fudged his results.
Intuition is a brilliant mix of workplace intrigue and scientific rigor that explores the moral consequences of rushing to judgment by Allegra Goodman.
