Satirical look at the man of "pure" science and the forces that push him to compromise. Arrowsmith is a likeable puppyish man, trustingly going where older men tell him he'll be happy - then shocked that he's been used for their purposes. There are many scathing portraits of pompous jerks of all societal levels, but those portraits are very human, not caricatures. Not what you'd call an "exciting" read - you see each disaster coming well before Arrowsmith does - but a very interesting one for all that.
