With humility unspoiled by false modesty, Watson relates his and Crick's desperate efforts to beat Linus Pauling to the Holy Grail of the life sciences, the identification of the basic building block of life. He is impressed by the achievements of the young man he was, but clear-eyed about his limitations.

1-What did you like /dislike about it?
I didn’t like the plot that book because it is a little bit bored.
It explains how Watson and Crick discovered the structure of the ADN and which are the elements that create the structure and, I think that, it is the typical story about a discovering of a theory - who discovered it ,when it was discovered , how it was discovered and , finally ,what happened with that discovering
I hoped a plot more interesting.
