A handsome first edition/first printing in Fine condition in alike dust-jacket, signed and inscribed by James D. Watson directly on the title page.
This memoir picks up where Watson's book The Double Helix finishes - in 1953 just after the announcement of the discovery of the structure of DNA, an historic achievement that won both Watson and Francis Crick the Nobel Prize. Watson's diary-like entries show him adjusting to his new-found fame, experimenting with the role of RNA in biology and falling in love. Included are copies of hand-written letters from Russian theoretician George Gamow.
