Join Nobel Prize winner Peter Doherty on his extraordinary adventures around the globe. Doherty has kept a journal about the far-flung destinations his work has taken him over more than thirty years. He shares his observations, thoughts and discoveries, which make perfect in-flight reading.

Scientists travel the world speaking, researching, advising. Their focus is usually firmly trained on their colleagues, on data and the problems at hand. But what happens when they lift their gaze to their surroundings, investigate the local history and culture, and ask- 'What the hell am I doing here?' The Incidental Tourist is about these new connections between people and places.
