Francis Crick and James Watson revolutionized biochemistry by elucidating the structure of DNA - and won themselves a Nobel Prize. At the time Watson was only 24, with more interest in girls than in chemistry. His uncompromisingly honest account of those heady days lifts the lid on the real world of greatscientists and the extraordinary excitement of their desperate attempts to beat Linus Pauling to the solution to one of the great enigmas of the life sciences.Hide synopsis

The most fascinating part of this story was the effort of Watson to keep in touch with
the son of Linus Pauling, who was hot on the path to discover the DNA molecule. It
was almost strange the way Watson and Crick used the x ray analysis of a female
coworker to describe the DNA molecule and later be ...
