    James Watson, co-discoverer of DNA structure, gives this authoritative yet personal account of the course of modern genetic research and the technological and ethical challenges unleashed by it.

    Amazon Customer says: "A view from within."
    "Many Interesting Topics Covered"
    Overall

    Often, scientists tend to write books that discuss only their work. But this book discusses many topics in applied genetics in an interesting way. I found the chapters on eugenics, genetic engineered crops, and the use of DNA testing in crime scenes to be particularly interesting. He does have strong opinions on many topics and he is not hesitant in sharing them. However, I found the book to be consistently interesting although it dragged a bit in the middle.
