Book Description

From Booklist , August 19, 1998: This is the concluding work in Carl "the Father of the Pill" Djerassi's science-in-fiction tetralogy on the life and behavior of modern scientists, and it focuses on Renu Krishnan, an Indian chemist, who, along with a group of scientists and investors, works to bring a device that helps with male impotence to market. The chemical component of the device is based on the nitric oxide molecule, whose abbreviation gives the book its title. The story follows Renu's career struggles as she works with teams in both academic and corporate environments trying to refine the pharmaceutical and delivery mechanisms of the new invention. Djerassi shows how the process is influenced by the personal lives of the development team and by the financial desires of the investors. Like the previous works in this series, NO contains all the requisite parts for an informative and compelling novel, but they don't quite jell, and what remains is emotionally detached, more process than plot.
