While not as ground-breaking at The Billion-Dollar Molecule, this sequel does an adequate job at analyzing how Vertex continued its expansion into the 21st century and the stories behind getting the first molecules out to market. It could have benefited from taking a step back or giving a broad strokes overview of Vertex from beginning to now before diving into the details. In addition, while the minutiae of the science didn't both me personally, for those less technically inclined in the fields covered, the lack of explanation and context for some of the science could be confusing.
