By: James D Watson
250 pages, no illustrations
A collection of essays, speeches, and reports by J D Watson, famously telling the story of his co-discovery with Crick of the structure of DNA in 1953. The pieces in this book deal with Watson's early life and career, science and politics, the advance of molecular genetics, genetics and society, the recombinant DNA debate, the prospects for curing cancer over the next decade, and how human genetic knowledge is likely to be used, for good or bad.
`Jim Watson has elevated his unique combination of justified arrogance, scurrilous candour and disconcertingly mature wisdom into an art form. As one of the half dozen twentieth century scientists whose name will live into the fourth millennium he gets away with it, and the result is both edifying and hugely entertaining.' Richard Dawkins
edifying and hugely entertaining Richard Dawkins 'Jim Watson's thoughts are fresh, fearless and free. What is more, they are usually right.' Matt Ridley, author of Genome
