And Other Lessons from a Life in Science
James D. Watson looks back on his extraordinary and varied career – from its beginnings as a schoolboy in Chicago's South Side to the day he left Harvard almost 50 years later, world-renowned as the co-discoverer of DNA – and considers
the lessons he has learnt along the way. The result is both an
engagingly eccentric memoir and an insightful compendium
of lessons in life for aspiring scientists. Avoid Boring People, is a quirky, original, wise, and infuriatingly un-put-downable blend of candid anecdotes and revealing insights into the life of one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century.
