Bob Prior, Executive Editor

During his over 25 years at MIT Press, Bob has published hundreds of trade and scholarly books in areas as diverse as Neuroscience, Computer Science, Natural History, Electronic Privacy, Evolution, and Design. He has even managed to sneak one novel onto the otherwise completely non-fiction MIT Press list! He continues to be thrilled at finding authors whose voices can have an impact and whose books belong at MIT Press. He is currently focusing on trade science books with an emphasis on the life sciences, neuroscience, and natural history. Bob can be reached at prior@mit.edu.
