Editor reviews

Two Nobel Prize winners - James D. Watson in 1962 and Eric Kandell in 2000 - sit down for a frank, enriching, and revelatory discussion of Watson's tremendously influential work in mapping the structure of DNA, presiding over the Human Genome Project, and his myriad other accomplishments in this engaging conversation recorded in October of 2007 in New York City.
The chemistry between these two towering figures in their respective fields and the bits of humor peppered throughout makes this a rewarding listen for science buffs as well as those with a fleeting interest in the topics discussed.
