What you must know about genetic engineering,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DNA: The Secret of Life (Hardcover)
Of perhaps a dozon worthwhile books in the world this is one. Yes I come from a computing and engineering background yet this book is fully understandable to me. Its true you need to look back from time to time because unless you are gifted with a good memory you will forget vital experiments. But all the explaination you need is there to understand such things as DNA sequencing and the like. Thank you James Watson for bringing something out for the intelligent public to read and understand.
Yes James does not hasitate to condemn ignorant and dangerous activists who simply understand nothing of what is going on, however having seen some of the computing "errors" that have occured in the field of programming, since the entry of many ignorant and non-thinking participants to the field, I certainly think there is room for more concern than is apparent in this book.
In truth ignorant people are very dangerous whose ever side they may be on, and democracy is no substitute for understanding.
Read this book and understand the very basics of this new miracle.
