This is a book by a scientist about scientists - and the inside story of one of the key discoveries of the century, the structure of DNA, the heredity molecule. Even more fascinating, perhaps, it is the superbly human tale of how a very unusual 23-year-old American saw his chance for scientific immortality and promptly set out to seize it.
