    James D. Watson, who shared the Nobel Prize for revealing the structure of DNA, 'the secret of life,' sheds light on the less revolutionary secrets to getting along and getting ahead in a competitive world. Recountingthe years of his own formation - from his father's birding lessons to the political cat's cradle of professorship at Harvard - Watson illuminates the progress of an exemplary scientific life, both his own pursuit of knowledge and how he learns to nurture fledgling scientists. Each phase of his experience yields a wealth of age-specific practical advice. With a 'Cast of Characters'; Chronology of Lessons Remembered. B&W illus. 347p.

    One of the discoverers of the structure of DNA, Watson began delving into his family history, and shares what he learned about an archetypal American family from before the Civil War and recounting his own life during the 20th century to the Vietnam War. His topics are: going for gold; Tolman's fateful plunge; the Kirtland's warbler, 1920-24; Roosevelt Democrats, 1925-42; ideas over facts, 1943-52; liberals at play, 1953-57; life without Jean; new frontier morphs into Vietnam, 1959-65; and more than good manners, 1966-68.

    On the fiftieth anniversary of Watson and Crick receiving the Nobel Prize, a freshly annotated and illustrated edition of The Double Helix provides new insights into the personal relationships among James Watson, Frances Crick, Maurice Wilkins, Rosalind Franklin and a scientific revolution. In his 1968 memoir, The Double Helix, James Watson offered a thrilling drama of the race among scientists to identify the structure of DNA. Professors Alexander Gann and Jan Witkowski have built upon this narrative; juxtaposing Watsons' racy account with the commentary of other protagonists offering an enhanced perspective of the now legendary story. They have mined many sources: including a trove of newly discovered correspondence belonging to Francis Crick mislaid some fifty years earlier; excerpts from the papers of Maurice Wilkins, Linus Pauling, and Rosalind Franklin; and a chapter that had been dropped from the original. After half a century, the implications of the double helix keep rippling outward; the tools of molecular biology have forever transformed the life sciences. The New Annotated and Illustrated Edition of The Double Helix adds a richness to the account of the momentous events that led the charge. The Double Helix is the best book I know about a scientific discovery this new edition suffuses the whole with social history, fascinating documentation, photography, and cunning background research. The early fifties, the beginning of the modern age of molecular biology, spring to life. Ian McEwan, author of Atonement --Provided by publisher.
