"Many of the scientists profiled in A Cure Within drew these cartoons (that's what scientists call such diagrams: cartoons). They are not meant to be particularly instructive, or even dutifully detailed as they were done on the fly. Most were executed in front of me in a matter of minutes and were not intended to further my personal scientific education. They are simply a quick peek of what was in the scientist's mind at the time when the drawing was requested. Please look upon them as fan autographs, if you will, gifted to me by my favorite stars."
