About This Item

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2004. First edition of this classic work. Octavo, original illustrated wrappers. Signed by James Watson, Andrew Berry and also signed by scientist Edward O. Wilson on the front free endpaper. In fine condition. A remarkable alignment of the planets is occurring in 2003: the 50th anniversary of the double helix and the completion of the sequence of the human genome. As a defining figure in both landmark events, no other human being on the planet is positioned to write as authoritatively about all this as Jim Watson. In DNA: The Secret of Life he does so with characteristic clarity, style, and wit. If you really want to know what happened in the most important half-century of biology since the world began, read this" (Francis Collins).
