Recommends it for: Early stage researchers
Very comprehensive book. More emphasis is on structures. Enough in-depth knowledge for the students/researchers who are at early stages of their research. I would say read this book after reading basic concepts from some other book. Pictures, Diagrams and figures are the plus point of this book.

Recommends it for: Molecular biologists interested in the gene.
This is the best textbook that I've read. Watson presents the information in a simple to understand way. The information is explained in good detail, and sources are given for the astute student to delve into more depth. This is hands down the best text book of my college days.

Geet: Erik will bring this in for you. It's like Molecular Biology of the Cell (MBotC), but focused on genes. Pro: This book is more concise, and therefore easier to read than MBotC (which tends to ramble). But, it has a narrower topic.

Recommends it for: aspiring biologists
Shelves: biology, textbooks
This is the best textbook I have ever read. I actually WANT to read it cover to cover. Its easy to read, the explanations are concise and easily understandable. Its really an enjoyable read if you're interested in molecular bio.

Another cover to cover reading as part of my GRE biochemistry preparation. This one is not as fun as Lehninger's Biochemistry but is arguably more accessible.
Erin
Very comprehensive and readable; fills in details that standard texts omit. A must for MBB grad students.
