Andre Lwoff

The history of a scientific endeavor, a true detective story that leaves the reader breathless from beginning to end.



Robert K. Merton

"The New York Times Book Review"

A fascinating case history...Describes the events that led up to one of the great biological discoveries of our time.



Jacob Bronowski

"The Nation"

No one could miss the excitement in this story of a great and beautiful discovery....The book communicates the spirit of science as no formal account has ever done....the sense of the future, the high spirits, and the rivalry and the guesses right and wrong, the surge of imagination and the test of fact.
