    Sandy Glass, a charismatic publicity-seeking oncologist, and Marion Mendelssohn, a pure, exacting scientist, are codirectors of a lab at the Philpott Institute dedicated to cancer research and desperately in need of a grant. Both mentors and supervisors of their young postdoctoral proteges, Glass and Mendelssohn demand dedication and obedience in a competitive environment where funding is scarce and results elusive.

    Overall

    I really hated this book. I listened to all of it, hoping it would get better; but it just dragged on and on. Characters called "flawed", "human" and "sympathic" in critic's reviews were, to me, just whiny, morose and utterly unsympathetic. I bought this book aftet reading an article comparing Goodman's style to Jane Austen. Goodman may admire Austen, but Intuition contains none of Austen's subtle wit and incisive characterization. I was alternately boerd and annoyed by Intuition; in fact, I was only ever interested at moments when I thought some interesting tragedy might befall one of the characters. Its a sad state of affairs where you find yourself hoping the main character will be diagonsed with cancer, struck by a car or fall through the ice to drown. Yet, despite some well crafted suspense, nothing ever comes of it; the build up leads nowhere. I can't get back the 14 hours I invested in Intuition, but perhaps I can spare you the time I lost.
