About the book
A GUIDE FOR INDEPENDENT-MINDED SCIENTISTS
This book is addressed to scientists in Malaysia and other developing countries, based on experience as a scientist, as a manager of scientists in a developing country, and years in international development. At the start, I could have chosen to emigrate to a western country but I chose to work in newly independent Malaysia because the challenge was greater here. I thought my scientific colleagues in Malaysia would be similarly motivated and together we could build a great scientific nation. I was wrong. Most of my colleagues did not have the same ambition and there was no guidance available.
The best scientists are at least 20 times more productive than average ones and that is because the best scientists think and act strategically. This is a book on strategy to help scientists find the right strategies for themselves, their organizations and their countries.
