Petit Point is not a book to be devoured in a single sitting

Petit Point is not a book to be devoured in a single sitting. It is one to be savored and reflected upon - it shows what the world may be like and what we ourselves may become. It is like a mirror - to be visited from time to time. Using a logical structure, uniform mathematical notation and high quality figures, the author helps readers to learn the theory of optical aberrations in a modern and efficient manner.

Petit Point: A Candid Portrait on the Aberrations of Science is a charming book written by the French physicist Pierre-Gilles de Gennes containing short essays on some of the prominent scientists that he encountered in his career. For obvious reasons, their names have been replaced with pseudonyms. I list the chapter names from the book: Mastoc, Vera, Lanterne, Leduc, Emmy, Breton, Smirnoff, Pluvieux, Beziers, Kuba, Vladimir, Aglae, Subtil, Chazot, Anchor, Croesus, Caesar, Guru, Dourakine, Saplir, Manfred, Robert, Polymorph, Revizor, Feston, Philostrate, Elise, Spiros, Akbar.

Pierre-Gilles de Gennes (French: ; 24 October 1932 – 18 May 2007) was a French physicist and the Nobel Prize laureate in physics in 1991. He was born in Paris, France, and was home-schooled to the age of 12. By the age of 13, he had adopted adult reading habits and was visiting museums. Later, de Gennes studied at the École Normale Supérieure.

In this book, Nobel Prize winner Pierre-Gilles de Gennes wittily captures the lives of personalities from both the academic and the industrial world in delightful bite-size stories. Most of the characters in this collection are like those in Aesop's fables, but in modern-day research settings. The book provides a critical account of aberrations (fortunately rare) of the scientific community. Many lessons can be drawn from the stories. For the young researcher, this book is like a telescope: for seeing other human beings beyond his or her laboratory. For the administrator, this book is like a microscope for seeing inside the human beings huge and complex structures.
