Product description

Review

'This book marks the beginning of something new. It is the first molecular biography...Venter's account is never less than engaging' -- Sunday Times

`maverick, publicity hound, risk-taker, brash, controversial, genius, manic, rebellious, visionary, audacious, arrogant, feisty, determined, provocative. His autobiography shows they are all justified' -- Nature

`A Life Decoded is a page-turner throughout' -- New Scientist

`A wonderfully original work...brims with entertaining revelations about the feuds, fights and friendships that underlie great research projects' -- FT Magazine

`a voyage of discovery: a description of code-breaking as complex as the cracking of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and no less important'
-- Guardian
