The chapter authors speak frankly about, the problems these projects encountered as well as the successes they achieved, the book strikes a useful balance between presenting the real stories of collaborations and developing a scientific approach to conceiving, designing, implementing, and evaluating such projects. It points to a future of scientific collaborations that build successfully on aspects from multiple disciplines."--Jacket."
