A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. By identifying the structure of DNA, the molecule of life, Francis Crick an d James Watson revolutionized biochemistry and won themselves a Nobel Prize . At the time, Watson was only twenty-four, a brilliant young zoologist hun gry to make his mark. His uncompromisingly honest account of the heady days of their thrilling sprint against other world-class researchers to solve o ne of science's greatest unsolved mysteries gives a dazzlingly clear pictur e of a world of brilliant scientists with great gifts, very human ambitions , and bitter rivalries. With humility unspoiled by false modesty, Watson relates his and Crick's de sperate efforts to beat Linus Pauling to the Holy Grail of the life science s, the identification of the basic building block of life. He is impressed by the achievements of the young man he was, but clear-eyed about his limit ations. Never has such a brilliant scientist also been so gifted, and so tr uthful, in capturing in words the flavor of his work. "He has described admirably how it feels to have that frightening and beaut iful experience of making a great scientific discovery." -Richard Feynman "Like nothing else in literature, it gives one the feel of how creative science really happens." -C. P. Snow
