“In My Shoes” is a charming, personal story of the life of a high-flying, world-traveling rock-star professor whose wife and daughter are vital parts of his life. Hidalgo captures the fun, fame, fatigue, and frustration of doing research while traveling to give talks in a global community. A cheerful blend of reality TV, video selfies, and eye-catching visuals. Research never looked so good!

"A fascinating and thoroughly original portrayal of the mindset of a scientist, working at one of the frontiers of 21st-century science.”
---Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and the author of How the Mind Works and The Language Instinct
"This is something that you never seen before-- Science Journalism 2.0-- a real time peek behind the scenes of how science is done and practiced. It is not the tired mythical image of a lonely scientist quietly working for years in the basement of some university. It unveils instead the highly collaborative social context within which science is done today, from the perspective of a young star! I think every future scientist should watch this!"
