About this book

In June 2000, for the first time in human history, scientists were able to unravel the mysteries contained within our genetic code. Craig Venter is the brilliant maverick who had made this happen. And since then, in 2006, he has gone on to decode the whole of his own genome, the first complete genome of any single human being. In "A Life Decoded" he tells his extraordinary life story from childhood, the young rebel running wild on the tracks, all the way through to the present day. It's a tale that includes Presidents, Prime Ministers and kings, princes of capitalism and science, but it is also a voyage of discovery through Venter's self-examination, his scientific accomplishments and his own genetic code. In life Craig Venter has pushed back the boundaries of the possible. "A Life Decoded" is the ultimate autobiography, asking us what we can ever really know of ourselves.

Media reviews
&i;'The media has called Venter many things: maverick, publicity hound, risk-taker, brash, controversial, genius, manic, rebellious, visionary, audacious, arrogant, feisty, determined, provocative. His autobiography shows that they are all justified'.&o;
