"Competition has become fiercer, and for good reason.  A decade ago, about 30% of NIH (National Institutes of Health) grants got funded; today it's about half that, due to an increase in scientists seeking money and a 20% decrease (adjusting for inflation) in the amount of funding available.  Scientists are locked in an unhealthy struggle. Unfortunately, young scientists who may have the freshest ideas are often the ones edged out in this competition.  They leave the world of research to the senior investigators who are able to draw funding because of their reputations.  At this point, there's little hope of infusing enough new money into science to right this imbalance. These deep structural problems have no obvious solutions.  It's going to get worse before it gets better.

Rigor Mortis is written for the same audience that listens to NPR's science reporting, people who are curious about the world around them and who want a deeper understanding of how the scientific enterprise works.  Science has been a driving force in our lives, helping us to understand the remarkable world we live in, while providing us technologies that make our lives better.  This book is for people who want to understand the very human process behind all that wonder.  I also hope that scientists who are trying to figure out how to make their enterprise more productive and less error-prone will find insights in reading Rigor Mortis."

~ Richard Harris, Debut Author of Rigor Mortis
