This is a book about Jack Andraka a 15 year old boy wonder and geek who invented a test strip sensor for detecting early stage pancreatic cancer It probably also has other medical applications as well and is considerably cheaper than other later stage tests available for this cancerThis book is his autobiography encompassing broad aspects of his lifeHis childhood with his parents doing a huge amount to foster interest in the sciences for both him and his brother Luke From their home made laboratory in the basement and their love of everything scientific one night they even caused a general blackout in the neighbourhood to the friendly competition between the brothers which I am sure drove them both to try harderA happy home life and a terrifying school life blighted by bullying because Jack was both clever and gay In middle school Jack used to eat his lunch in the lavatories He was too frightened to join his classmates in the cafeteria at lunch time Some of the teachers were also prejudiced against homosexuals too In senior school he made one very good friend and she did much to improve the uality of his school experience I was appalled at the descriptions of the bullying This had nothing to do with the main thrust of the book but I found the degree of prejudice and unkindness shown by Jack s classmates shockingHis experiences with his Uncle Ted a lovely man who dies of pancreatic cancer and who sets Jack off in the direction of trying to find a way of detecting it earlierSome gobbledegook science where he explores various avenues relating to his research nice reading for scientists but this bit is uite short so take a deep breath and read on normal folk Marvellous descriptions of the tenacity that Jack showed in his efforts to A find a proper laboratory where he could test his hypothesis and B his stoicism in conducting the research itself He applied to two hundred labs One hundred and ninety ninety rejected his reuest but finally Professor Anirban Maitra at the John Hopkins School of Medicine offered him lab space The descriptions of his research were mind boggling He laboured and laboured to find the protein which would act as a bio marker relevant to his research one of 8000 proteins Days slipped in to nights as his mom slept in the car parked outside the lab waiting to take her son home But eureka It happened And much of this book describes the lauding and celebrations that followed this breakthrough From winning The Gordon E Moore Award at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in 2012 to meeting Barak and Michelle Obama to numerous television interviews Suddenly the school nerd was swept up into the limelight and no one having read of his earlier school experiences can be anything but delighted The book also covers another science success story This time Jack and his great school pal Chloe invent a purifying water bottle for filtering water in countries where it is dangerously contaminated with things like mercury and pesticides It took them six months to do the researchand they succeeded They won the Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge plus 50000 to share in scholarship moneyThis book is a wonderfully inspiring read One feels that Jack is all set to go off and lead a marvellous life as a scientist and inventorand hooray for that I feel I ought however to remark on the Wikipedia entry I have just read for him I have no idea of its validity but it casts a few shadows on his research not least in being critical that he has filed a patent for his test strip rather than allowing anyone to use and build upon itFinally his test strip for the early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer has yet to come onto the market This process with testing will apparently take about ten yearsJack s TED talk entry
