By: James D Watson
304 pages, Illus
In the years following his and Francis Crick's discovery of DNA, James Watson was obsessed with finding two things: RNA and a wife. This is the entertaining chronicle of those pursuits. He also brings in some of his fellow titans, from Linus Pauling and the incorrigible Richard Feynman to Russian physicist George Gamow, who loved whisky, limericks, and card tricks as much as molecules and genes.
