Dealer Notes
Genes, Girls and Gamow is an autobiographical account of Jim Watson's life, following on from The Double Helix, the story of his and Francis Crick's discovery of the structure of DNA (published in 1968). Here is Watson adjusting to new-found fame, carrying out tantalizing experiments on the role of RNA in biology, and falling in love, in a tale of heartbreak, scientific excitement and ambition.
