Reviews

"A rollicking good tale about an enduring intellectual monument."-- "American Scientist"
"Superb. A tantalizing glimpse of the ethical perils and technological possibilities awaiting humanity."-- "The Los Angeles Times"
"The technical aspects of the major developments are excellently mediated for general readers. Moreover, Davies accents the rivalry and animosity of the Venter-Collins race, confirming once again that science is as much about fame and wealth as about pure Feynmanian curiosity. An informative run-through of genetics since Crick and Watson's discovery of DNA in 1953."-- "Booklist"
