really liked it
Read from March 13 to June 26, 2012

Watson is a pompous, egotistical, and chauvinistic jerk. The personality comes out especially in the early pages of this recount of the events leading up to the discovery of the structure of DNA. However, the excitement of being on the edge of an important scientific discovery eventually comes through and outweighs the distaste I had for Watson personally.

It was a short read and well worth your time if you haven't read it already.
