Watson holds nothing back when revealing the petty sniping and backbiting among his colleagues, while acknowledging that he himself was a willing participant in the melodrama. In particular, Watson reveals his mixed feelings about his famous colleague in discovery, Francis Crick, who many thought of as an arrogant man who talked too much, and whose brilliance was appreciated by few. This is the joy of The Double Helix--instead of a chronicle of stainless-steel heroes toiling away in their sparkling labs, Watson's chronicle gives readers an idea of what living science is like, warts and all. The Double Helix is a startling window into the scientific method, full of insight and wit, and packed with the kind of science anecdotes that are told and retold in the halls of universities and laboratories everywhere. It's the stuff of legends. --Therese Littleton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Well written, engaging and personal. Some of the science is difficult but does not prevent the lay reader from following the story.Published 15 days ago by Atul Kanagat
OMG this book is HORRIBLE reading. Dr. Watson's ego and misogyny make it near impossible to read this book. Read morePublished 1 month ago by CatCollins
I am enjoying the causal writing of an extraordinary discovery. I say casual because the author writes with an easy style even though the topic is total science.Published 3 months ago by Rebecca
Fascinating and well-written. My daughter's entire AP Bio class had to read it the summer before the class started, so I read it, too. Great idea.Published 4 months ago by luv2teach
