‘In this excellent first biography of Francis Crick, who died in 2004, the suspense is terrific…authoritative…lucid…he captures Crick's audacity, brilliance and, not least, eloquence.’ Sunday Times
‘From the pages of this biography Crick emerges as a powerful, dominating figure who ruled seminars and parties with equal ease, and Ridley, an experienced science writer, with a neat turn of phrase and a proper appreciation of brevity can be satisfied he has done justice to his subject. His book has pace, concisenness and wit…the book is a delight.’ The Observer
'Ridley explains his discoveries with wonderful clarity.' Telegraph Review

Well written book. Lots of insight into the characters and their personal life alongside with precision and thoroughness when talking about science.
Deserves the money.
A view of Crick from early days right through, past Watson, Brenner, to the end, very readable, and gives an excellent flavour of the nam, one of my heroes.Published 15 months ago by Mr. James F. Mcdonald
