In the end though science is what matters scientists not a bit Steve Jones in James D Watson s The Double HelixI gave it three stars last night DNA night thanks Riku but that just didn t seem right The structure wasn t stable and I felt it probably deserved four stars one for A one for T one for G one for C also one for Watson one for Crick one for Wilkins and yes one for FranklinShort interesting personal and important but also sexist biased according to Crick a violation of friendship Watson s attitudes towards Rosalind Franklin today seem so maligned that Watson eventually had to clarify that these were attitudes and view at the time of the discovery and not when he wrote the book Still despite this major and very real issue the book along with Watson Crick Wilkins contributions cannot be undersold The discovery of DNA s structure changed biology and the book catapulted Watson Crick into that pantheon of fame that is seldom reached by even Nobel level scientists
